Mission and Goals

The St.Vincent Hospital Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency, including the faculty, attending staff and residents strive to:

  1. Provide for and have the residents obtain an excellent didactic and practical experience in all aspects of obstetrics and gynecology to prepare them to serve as clinicians and consultants for the specialty.
  2. Instill and develop a lifetime attitude in the residents toward the value and necessity of learning.
  3. Develop an appreciation of the patient as a human being with other attributes not related to a physician/patient relationship.
  4. Prepare the residents for certification through successful completion of the basic written and oral examinations administered by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

The residents are expected to devote their time and energies to the acquisition of this knowledge and development of these skills. The teaching physicians, both attending staff and full-time faculty, are expected to provide the time, attention, guidance, and explanations to achieve these goals. These goals are desirable to provide not only excellent health care for women, but to insure longevity of this excellence for future generations.
