OB/GYN ResidencyResearch

About Our Research

Research is an important component of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Faculty members engage in clinical research activities and serve as research mentors to residents.

All residents gain experience in the research process by completing at least one research project and sometimes several projects, during the course of their program. They have access to the research managers and statisticians at the Center for Urban Population Health, located on the Aurora Sinai Medical Center campus, and work with many nationally recognized urban health researchers. Residents are encouraged to publish and present their findings at Advocate Aurora’s Yearly Scientific conference as well as at National conferences and in Scientific Journals.
