The Aurora OB/GYN Residency program provides a supportive academic and clinical environment for resident physicians to develop the skills needed to become quality practitioners in the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology.
Clinical education, which is complemented by a strong academic program in the basic and applied clinical sciences, involves residents in patient care in ambulatory care settings and the hospital, including assisting in and performing deliveries and surgery.
Each resident gains experience in general obstetrics and gynecology, as well as:
Family planning, sexual assault, sexuality counseling and management of complications of substance abuse are included. Experiences in primary care, emergency medicine and obstetric critical care are also an integral part of the curriculum.
Residents participate one half day a week in their own personal continuity clinic, which is located at our main Sinai Medical Center campus. Continuity clinics consist of a wide range of patient care. Additionally, conferences, lectures, seminars and workshops are held during regularly scheduled protected education time on Friday mornings.
A key service of Aurora Health Care, Aurora Sinai Women’s Health Services offers modern facilities and is one of the largest and best OB/GYN care delivery services of its kind in Wisconsin.
Women’s Health Services includes:
Aurora’s four-year OB/GYN residency program provides high-quality postgraduate education for resident physicians. Resident rotations include general obstetrics and gynecology as well as subspecialties like reproductive endocrinology and gynecological oncology.
Ultrasound training and extensive simulation training in robotic and laparoscopic surgery are integrated into the curriculum. Resident wellness is also a core part of our curriculum, providing mental and physical health support.
Aurora Sinai Medical Center's Health Science Library is part of the extensive Advocate Aurora Health Library System. Residents can access holdings of the National Library of Medicine and other resource libraries from all Aurora library sites.
The libraries offer both mediated and end-user search capabilities. Mediated searches use the National Library of Medicine databases along with access to commercial databases as needed. Libraries are accessible to residents at all times, and professional medical librarians are available to provide training.
The Benjamin E. Urdan Memorial Library, established in 1987, is specifically for OB/GYN residents. Educational resources include books, journals, manuscripts, videotapes, audiotapes, models and personal computers with educational and application software. The library’s conference room serves as the site for resident educational activities such as resident morning report, rounds and communication meetings.
