OB & Women’s Health Training

We have one of the highest-volume Family Medicine and OB training experiences in the country. Our staff includes 17 Family Medicine faculty attendings who supervise deliveries, serving as role model comprehensive Family Medicine physicians.  Furthermore, two of the FM Faculty have completed Family Medicine OB fellowship programs.

Our facility averages 250 deliveries per month with our residents delivering 99 percent of the patients. The cumulative (three year) resident delivery numbers average 110-210 deliveries. Our residents are the primary delivery physician for almost all forceps and vacuum deliveries.

Our residents train as the primary surgeon on 35-100 C-sections over three years, leading to competency and options for OB surgical privileges after training.

Labor floor supervision, vaginal deliveries, and C-sections are performed by our Family Medicine residents in consultation with Family Medicine faculty, in-house OB laborists, or community OB attendings.
