Thank you for your interest in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program offered by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
Our four-year ACGME accredited program offers the opportunity to obtain training at a nationally recognized program with world-class facilities. The University of Iowa residency offers the surgical, obstetrical and subspecialty volume to become a well-trained private practitioner or to pursue a subspecialty fellowship.
Our faculty are nationally recognized. We have members who serve as board examiners, sit on editorial boards and major obstetrical and gynecology journals and have been editors and contributors to major texts in Ob/Gyn.
We have faculty dedicated to teaching. Many of our faculty have received recognition through the College of Medicine and nationally for their contribution to resident and medical student education. Many of our faculty are active in research and have NIH grants and publish their findings in the obstetrical and gynecology literature.
We have five accredited fellowship programs. The Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship Program is ACGME accredited. The Fellowship programs in Gynecologic Oncology, Maternal Fetal Medicine, combined Maternal Fetal Medicine/Clinical Genetics and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility are ABOG accredited.
I chose Iowa because it was not only the place where I would get the best education, it was the place where I would enjoy my four years the most. They have a great reputation for strong academics and top-notch faculty and I really felt at home among the residents.
I instantly loved Iowa because everyone was so friendly and nice. I love the exposure to so many fellowships and the amazing hospital facilities. It has everything you would want in an academic program combined with "Midwest nice" situated in a welcoming community.
I am most excited about receiving top quality training without having to move to a larger, busier city. In addition, I love that the program is truly family friendly since my husband and our little girl will obviously be starting this new chapter with me.
I chose Iowa for its strong commitment to all three pillars of academic medicine, particularly opportunities in education. As a native Iowan the culture and opportunities of the surrounding community were also appealing.
I chose to come to Iowa because it provides outstanding, balanced clinical training in a supportive, friendly, and education-oriented environment. Moreover, it provides a rich research environment with ample opportunities to engage in both clinical and basic science research throughout the training process and beyond with enthusiastic and accessible physician scientist role models.
