Residents who prefer not to avail themselves of this opportunity will be assigned to a Gyn rotation at University Hospital in San Antonio. Under certain circumstances - e.g., residents who are contemplating a subspecialty fellowship that requires one month of externship at a different institution - prior approval for a selective rotation at another institution must be obtained from the Program Director and Chairman.

 

The program is fully accredited and approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education for 24 house officers in Obstetrics and Gynecology - six at each training level. Our educational objectives are based on the Council for Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gyneology (CREOG) educational objectives, and are updated annually with the goal of continuous improvement of the residency program.
