Obstetrics & Gynecology
Compassionate care for women of all ages. The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology is a nationally-known institution educating the future leaders of tomorrow while treating the patients of the present.
Our fully accredited academic program blends evidence-based clinical training, in-vivo and laboratory based simulation, research, and formal didactic educational experiences to prepare graduates for private practice, academic positions, or subspecialty fellowships.
The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology continues to make advancements in the prevention, diagnosis, management and treatment of conditions and illnesses related to pregnancy, childbirth and the female reproductive system. While Obstetrics & Gynecology are two distinct medical specialities, they are often combined to form a single medical specialty, OB/GYN.
Graduates of the Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency Program have been accepted to fellowships in advanced laparoscopic surgery(MIS), gynecologic oncology, gynecologic urology (Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery), maternal and fetal medicine (MFM), and reproductive endocrinology (REI).
In addition to the Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency Program, the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology works collaboratively with the Department of Family & Community Medicine to offer the one-year Maternal Child Health Fellowship Program (MCH).
The fellowship is aimed at providing an extended spectrum of training in maternity and newborn care designed for the family physician. Fellows participate fully in the care of their patients and
receive hands-on training in operative delivery, high-risk antepartum care and care of the ill newborn.
The faculty physicians at UCSF Fresno are highly-trained experts who are considered amongst the most respected in their field. Residents are able to interact closely with these individuals and gain valuable knowledge that they can use in the future. In addition to access to some of the finest faculty physicians in the country, participants in the Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency Program are exposed to a wide variety of clinical cases and pathologies due to the unique demographic makeup of the large catchment area.
