Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science

The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is advancing women’s health care through education, patient care, research, and global and public health initiatives. Our Department trains the next generation of physicians and physician-scientists to deliver innovative patient care and patient-focused research across the spectrum of women's reproductive health.

Our faculty members and trainees manage high-risk pregnancies, provide antepartum genetic diagnoses and comprehensive family planning services, and perform minimally invasive surgery. Our physicians also provide urogynecology services, treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted infections, surgical and nonsurgical management of gynecologic cancers, and advanced reproductive endocrinology services for female and male factor infertility.

Our Department has a strong history of patient-oriented research. Current research initiatives focus on advancing Maternal Fetal Medicine, quality of care in obstetrics, innovative gynecologic surgieries, and Gynecologic Oncology. In addition to our patient care and research services, we provide community service both locally and internationally.

In addition to our residency and fellowship programs, we also train medical students. We offer five-week clerkships for third-year medical students at The Mount Sinai Hospital, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai West (formerly Mount Sinai Roosevelt), and Elmhurst Hospital Center. The structure of the clerkship is divided into clinical and didactic experiences. Clinical experiences in obstetrics occur on the labor and delivery unit and in our ambulatory clinics. Clinical gynecology experiences occur on the inpatient unit and the operating rooms, as well as our ambulatory clinics. Didactic experiences are composed of daily rounds, seminars, and preceptor sessions.

Fourth-Year Electives

We offer a variety of electives and experiences for fourth-year School of Medicine students in the Medical Student Clerkship program. We also have programs for students who are not attending the Medical School. To apply for an away elective, visit the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS). Note: You must receive authorization from your medical school before logging into VSAS. The Department is currently not accepting students from non-VSAS participating schools.
