Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency

The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai provides clinical training in obstetrics, gynecology, oncology, reproductive endocrinology, and urogynecology.

Our mission is to train residents to become superb clinicians, as well as foster the next generation of leaders in women's health care and reproductive sciences. Our residents and faculty achieve this goal by caring for a broad patient population, utilizing our medical resources and technology, and promoting and participating in ground-breaking research.

Our four-year residency program provides an excellent foundation for graduates to practice obstetrics and gynecology, proceed to subspecialty fellowship training, and become advocates for women’s health care.  This foundation is developed through our Obstetrical and Gynecologic services, as well as exposure to all of our subspecialty divisions.
