Letter from Program Director

I want to take this opportunity to welcome you and tell you about the amazing Ob-Gyn residency program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our world-class medical center and university is located in a medium-sized city in the upper Midwest that is consistently ranked among the best places to live in the United States. Our department is committed to excellence and we designed our residency program to train outstanding, inquisitive, knowledgeable obstetricians-gynecologists equipped to become leaders in our field. The working and learning environment of our program is built from a sense of family and we foster an environment of collaboration, humility, integrity and respect. In our department, we wholeheartedly believe diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation that will promote equity in access to quality healthcare. We appreciate the unique contributions of each individual’s identity, culture, background, and experience.

We have outstanding surgical numbers in gynecology and subspecialties. Residents see high volumes of obstetrical patients and work side by side with fabulous generalists and perinatologists. We have a well-balanced comprehensive program with several unique features, including a global health track, resident research curriculum, rural training track, surgical simulation program, family planning rotation, and resident clinic serving disadvantaged patients. There are multiple outpatient experiences in varied clinical settings, including our Menopause Clinic, Hope After Loss Clinic, CenteringPregnancy, Share the Health Free Gynecology Clinic, University Health Services, and more.

Our residency program is comprehensive, caring, and creative. We are committed to promoting wellness during residency. We assign each resident peer and faculty mentors to provide guidance throughout their training. We provide the education and support to allow each of our residents to reach their highest potential and fulfill their individual career goals.
