Residency Training Program
Our vision is to train and mentor the future local and global leaders, advancing and transforming women’s health across the lifespan.
Our Residency Mission
The mission of the Stanford ObGyn Residency Program is to train competent, compassionate and inquisitive obstetrician-gynecologists that will become leaders in clinical care, education and research in Ob/Gyn and its subspecialties.
The Stanford Ob/Gyn residency program is an academically driven community characterized by clinical excellence, intellectual curiosity, and collegial resilience.
Our clinical training is founded on the care of a diverse patient population and includes immersion in the traditional subspecialties of Maternal Fetal Medicine, Gynecology Oncology, Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility, Urogynecology, Family Planning, and Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology. Training is further enhanced by a robust, longitudinal simulation experience as well as participation in our gender and LGBTQ+ programs.
We complement our clinical training with access to a wealth of academic opportunities on the Stanford campus. Research and mentorship are available in all sub-specialties as well as collaboratively with departments across Stanford. We offer protected research time and multiple selectives that you can tailor to your career interests. After residency, about half of our residents pursue subspecialty training, both in traditional fellowships as well as less common pathways such as Clinical Informatics. Those that go on to generalist practice are well prepared for academic careers, which many of our graduates pursue.
We are vested in the wellness and growth of our trainees. We emphasize compassionate care and resilience in medicine, have protected time for teaching and wellness, and nurture our trainees to thrive as leaders. You will find our residents advocating for policy changes at the state and national level while embodying those values locally in the care of our patients. While our residents come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, we continually seek to grow the breadth of our community through the inclusion of members from wide ranging backgrounds, experiences, and with broad reaching career aspirations. We seek residents passionate about providing impeccable patient care and possessing an intellectual drive for the advancement of women’s health.
We look forward to meeting you and learning how you will complement our program!
