The OB/Gyn Department at UVA is dedicated to providing outstanding educational programs that instruct the next generation of physicians while advancing the field of women’s health. Faculty are dedicated to resident education at a departmental and individual level, and residents are dedicated to the education of other residents and medical students. We cultivate a culture that encourages our residents to seek opportunities to educate.

Medical Students

Our Medical Students are able to demonstrate a comprehensive women’s medical interview including menstrual history, obstetrical history, gynecologic history, contraceptive history, sexual history, family history, past medical history, surgical history, social history, and review of systems and are able to present this in written and oral form.

Residency Program

Our residency program provides residents with the clinical and educational environment to ensure that upon completion of training, they will have acquired the knowledge, technical skills, and judgement necessary to function independently as obstetrician-gynecologists.

The primary objective and goal of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship at the University of Virginia Health System is to train physicians who will pursue a successful academic career in Maternal-Fetal Medicine and be leaders in our field.
