The LSU Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency Program in Baton Rouge
Empowering residents to heal, comfort, and grow as critical thinkers.
Training physician leaders to become compassionate, respectful and competent obstetricians and gynecologists
At the completion of the four year curriculum, each resident will graduate mastering the six core 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. Residents will also be robotic surgery certified upon completion of requirements at graduation.
There are four positions at each level, and our residents stay in Baton Rouge for the four years of their instruction. The first year of training provides extensive clinical experience by allowing the residents to rotate in obstetrics and gynecology, maternal fetal medicine, radiology, emergency medicine, internal medicine, and NICU. During the second year, residents receive a greater level of responsibility in obstetrics and gynecology, with main focus being obstetrics. Third and fourth year residents continue their training with subspecialty experience in maternal fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, gynecologic oncology, urogynecology, and minimally invasive surgery including vaginal, laparoscopic and robotic assisted hysterectomies.
