The Ohio State University (OSU) and Mount Carmel Health System integrated their OB/GYN residencies in 1995. Our program combines the superb facilities and high-volume of Mount Carmel with the excellent resources of OSU into a model 48-month obstetrics/gynecology residency.
The program is currently approved for 44 residents per year. Eleven residents at each level of training rotate between the University Hospitals and Mount Carmel Health in 4½ - 5 week blocks. Residents rotate through obstetrics, benign gynecology, maternal fetal medicine, urogynecology, and gynecological oncology at both Mount Carmel Health and University Hospitals. Infertility and emergency medicine is done at OSU. The curriculum fully satisfies revised Residency Review Committee (RRC) special requirements, including those for primary care training.
The teaching faculty, most of whom have appointments at OSU College of Medicine, are either board certified or pending examination. All subspecialties of obstetrics and gynecology are represented by board certified faculty members who are actively involved in clinical teaching and supervision.
Nearly 1,500 babies per year are delivered at Mount Carmel West, which also maintains an active gynecological service that includes all three subspecialties including urogynecology. At University Hospitals, 3,700 babies are delivered each year. Between Mount Carmel West, University Hospitals, and the James Cancer Hospital, nearly 4,500 gynecologic surgical procedures are performed annually. This volume provides a comprehensive educational experience for our residents.
Rotations have been added at Mount Carmel St. Ann's Hospital. These include one chief resident, two PGY-3 residents in benign gynecology and a PGY-1 and a PGY-2 in obstetrics. 5,000 babies per year are delivered at St. Ann’s.
