LSUHSC Baton Rouge OB/GYN Residency Program
Welcome to the LSUHSC Baton Rouge OB/GYN residency program! The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program is co-sponsored by Earl K. Long Medical Center, a public acute care university hospital, and Woman's Hospital, a private not-for-profit facility with the largest delivery service in the state. In combining these two hospitals, the resident will receive the ultimate in medical education and training by being exposed to the public and private practice.
This program offers a comprehensive four year curriculum. There are four positions at each level, beginning at the PGY-1 level. Initial accreditation began July '07. The educational program & curriculum are based on the educational objectives established by the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG).
The first year of training provides extensive clinical experience by allowing the residents to rotate in obstetrics, gynecology, emergency medicine, internal medicine, and NICU.
During the second year, residents receive a greater level of responsibility in general obstetrics & gynecology. Second year residents will also experience rotations in the adult intensive care unit.
Third and fourth year residents continue OB/GYN training with emphasis in MFM, REI, GYN ONC, & Urogyn. The program is co-sponsored with Woman's Hospital in Baton Rouge. Woman's Hospital has 8,100 births annually.
