LSUHSC 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 Louisiana’s babies.
Services at Woman’s Hospital include medical and surgical treatment of gynecological conditions, urological (bladder) conditions, diseases of the breast, plastic and reconstructive surgery, orthopedic surgery, and selected general surgery, such as gall bladder, appendix and hernia repair. This along with over 8,100 deliveries annually, 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 reports, 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 6 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. Third and fourth year residents continue Ob/Gyn training with emphasis in Maternal Fetal Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology, Gynecologic Oncology, & Urogynecology.
Again, thank you for your interest in the LSU Baton Rouge Ob/Gyn Program. We hope to receive your application for our highly competitive program.
