Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program Curriculum
Our core curriculum conferences are held four hours weekly with Monday and Thursday 7:00 am lectures and Thursday afternoons from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. In addition to direct teaching from Scott & White senior staff, we bring in several outside consultant speakers each year to benefit the department's continuing education program and to supplement the skills and talents of senior staff.
We require our residents to maintain certification in Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, and Neonatal Resuscitation. The residents are an integral part of our teaching program, as they participate in the education of medical students as well as non-Ob/Gyn residents.
Our Health Informatics Department offers computer training for all levels of computer users and will assist residents in acquiring free Internet and e-mail access for their home computers.
