Rotations

The Ohio State University-Mount Carmel Health Obstetrics/Gynecology Residency Program offers a comprehensive program that addresses the full spectrum of OB/GYN practice. Residents emerge from the program with competency in a broad range of OB/GYN specialties, as well as significant hands-on experience with a variety of patient populations and practice settings. What follows are descriptions of program rotations, as well as a sample calendar that details activities during a typical week at Mount Carmel West in the Department of OB/GYN.

Ten residents serve at Mount Carmel West at any one time.

  • PGY-1: Two residents cover labor & delivery.
  • PGY-2: One resident is responsible for the antepartum admissions. One resident is assigned to gynecology-oncology.
  • PGY-3: Two residents are assigned to benign gynecology services and surgery.
  • PGY-4: One resident works with the gynecology-oncology team. One resident is the chief on labor & delivery. One resident is the chief of clinical gynecology surgery and urogynecology.
  • One resident (PGY-1 or PGY-2) is the night float person, which ensures that the 80-hour workweek is adhered to.

All residents rotate through the Mount Carmel West program two to three months per year, either for four to six weeks at a time through two rotations or for a continuous two to three months.

Four residents rotate at Mount Carmel St. Ann's and are involved with surgery and obstetrics.
