The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Wisconsin is a robust academic department engaged in education, research, clinical services, and advocacy for women. The programs we have developed within each of these areas are of the highest quality.

Our Department is committed to outstanding clinical care. In collaboration with our colleagues located at both the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Meriter Hospital, a full range of general and subspecialty inpatient and outpatient services are available to women of all ages. We provide meticulous care with cutting-edge technology and attention to detail, while maintaining the highest degree of sensitivity.

Our faculty members are strongly committed to education at all levels (undergraduate, medical students, postgraduate trainees, continuing medical education, and allied health professionals). We are particularly proud of our medical student and resident educational programs, as well as our Fellowship training programs in Maternal Fetal Medicine and Gynecologic Oncology. Our obstetrics and gynecology residents have an excellent track record of either becoming established in very desirable practices or entering top quality subspecialty fellowships in top-notch academic medical centers throughout the US.

Our faculty are involved in a wide variety of clinical, translational and basic research programs. Opportunities are provided for students and residents to become involved in focused research projects during their elective time. Faculty collaborate with research groups throughout the University of Wisconsin campus, including the Comprehensive Cancer Center, the NIH-funded Clinical Research Center, Departments of Population Health, Genetics, and many others.

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is dedicated to continued excellence and growth as we carry out our missions of education, research, clinical care, advocacy, and community service. We appreciate your interest in our department. Please contact us if you require further information.
