Welcome to the residency training program in Obstetrics & Gynecology at the Jamaica Hospital Medical Center. Our goal is to train expert and compassionate physicians conversant in the principles and practice of modern obstetrics and gynecology, and able to assess clinical problems in a systematic and analytical fashion. Ours is a community hospital residency with a scholarly orientation and high academic standards; the training is suitable whether the resident's goal is clinical practice or academic medicine.
Our program is small and close-knit. It provides a family-like intimacy that nurtures mutual support among residents and close mentoring relationships with faculty. We emphasize the humanistic as well as the technologic aspects of medicine, and strive to provide the best possible care to the women of our surrounding communities.
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center provides a four-year residency program fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and approved by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG). Residents participate in a variety of educational activities, including several hours of protected teaching time each week, a faculty mentorship program, and the conduct of independent research. Our commitment to teaching is reflected in the fact that our ABOG Written Exam pass rate for new graduates has been 100% for the last five years in a row.
Our program strives to provide residents exposure to the full breadth and depth of the field. It is a small program (12 categorical and 1 preliminary resident positions) providing an educational intimacy we feel is crucial to our mission. The residents serve almost all of their clinical rotations on the hospital campus. Exceptions include a one-month PGY-2 rotation in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) at the Weill Cornell Medical College; a two-month PGY-3 rotation in Gynecologic Oncology at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; and a one-month PGY-3 or PGY-4 elective rotation. All clinical activities are performed under the direct supervision of our dedicated, experienced, full-time teaching faculty.
