Message from the Chair

Building on a history of notable achievements in women’s health care, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai’s Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science is a leader in advancing clinical research management.

Our Department is responsible for the entire range of clinical inpatient and outpatient services for both obstetrics and gynecology. We oversee more than 18,000 births per year and perform more gynecological surgeries than any other Department in the New York area. Our clinician-researchers are making significant strides in women’s health.

As fully integrated components of the Department, our undergraduate and graduate teaching programs are shaped by our superb faculty members and the groundbreaking research they conduct. With specialized training for medical students, an obstetrics and gynecology residency program, and seven fellowship programs, our commitment to medical education is clear.

At the undergraduate level, we provide all medical students with a comprehensive background in obstetrics and gynecology. Our students rank us in the highest grouping for their clerkship experience as compared to other departments at the School of Medicine. 

At the graduate level, we train our residents to perform the role of consultant obstetrician and gynecologist to general practitioners and other specialists, consistent with the standards of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our residency program includes subspecialty training–– allowing residents to provide primary and specialty care to obstetrical and gynecologic patients. Our residency program has a built-in global health rotation. Residents work alongside our faculty members to provide reproductive care at our international sites. Our residents also gain research experience through dedicated rotations and collaborations with our faculty members.

Our Department oversees seven fellowship programs, one of the largest fellowship programs offered by any obstetrics and gynecology department in the nation. Qualified physicians may choose between fellowships in Family Planning, Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Global Health, Gynecologic Oncology, Maternal Fetal Medicine, Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Each program provides in-depth clinical and research training, as well as opportunities for professional development.

Above all, our Department prides itself in its commitment to professionalism. We maintain a mutually respectful code of conduct among all levels of physicians and trainees.

I invite you to explore our Department and all we have to offer our patients, research community, trainees, and faculty members.
