  • OB High/Low Option Announced

    Available July 2018, a new high/low OB option allows a PGY-3 resident to substitute an elective for an additional month of OB.  A corresponding PGY-2 can substitute one month of OB with a rotation tailored to their future practice plans.  With one less month, the low-OB option requires a total of three months of OB experience, usually resulting in 60 deliveries.  The high option is specially designed to give OB-focused residents the chance to gain additional and expanded procedural training.

  • Spanish Language Track Launched

    Our new Spanish language track for residents was launched on September 18.  Designed for incoming residents who already speak an intermediate level of Spanish, the track trains residents to a proficiency level that obviates the need for interpreters.  The track is led by two bilingual faculty members and a Spanish professor from Baylor University and consists of targeted Spanish instruction, mentoring, workshops and standardized proficiency testing.  Successful graduates of the track are awarded a certificate of qualification at the completion of residency.

A great day in residency.
My morning consisted of performing two colonoscopies. I then walked to OB to deliver a baby (my 17th continuity delivery in less than 2 years). While waiting, I performed a skin to skin c-section with one of our OB attendings. Soon after, I delivered my patient's baby and then drove to clinic to remove a pyogenic granuloma...all before lunch."
