LSUSOM Baton Rouge OB/GYN Residency Program

Welcome to the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Baton Rouge Obstetrics & Gynecology residency program!

Our fully accredited program began in July of 2007 and was initially co-sponsored by Earl K. Long and Woman’s Hospital. Today, our primary location is Woman's Hospital, Louisiana’s largest birthing facility, delivering more than 15% of the babies born in Louisiana (over 8,000 per year!).

Services at Woman’s Hospital include medical and surgical treatment of gynecological conditions, urogynecological conditions, maternal fetal medicine, oncology, neonatology, anesthesiology, diseases of the breast, plastic and reconstructive surgery, orthopedic surgery, and general surgery. These services allow our residents to gain maximum experience in becoming highly effective clinicians, surgeons, teachers, and leaders.

In keeping with the LSU School of Medicine mission, we provide a solid foundation of clinical knowledge and experience to nurture residency performance and professional growth. We have structured didactics, Grand Rounds, Morbidity and Mortality conferences, and Journal Club at least twice monthly during resident protected educational time.

The educational program & curriculum are based on the educational objectives established by the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG). As such, at the completion of the four year curriculum, each resident will graduate mastering the six competencies outlined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME): patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice.

There are four positions at each level, beginning at the PGY-1 level. The first year of training provides extensive clinical experience by allowing the residents to rotate in obstetrics, gynecology, emergency medicine, internal medicine, and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. During the second year, residents receive a greater level of responsibility in general obstetrics & gynecology, and a radiology rotation is included.  Third and fourth year residents continue Ob/Gyn training with emphasis in Maternal Fetal Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology, Gynecologic Oncology, Urogynecology, and Minimally Invasive Surgery.

Again, thank you for your interest in the LSUSOM Baton Rouge Ob/Gyn Residency Program. We look forward to receiving your application to our highly competitive program.
