Over 100 full-time faculty and 200 part-time faculty participate in the residency training program and are highly committed to teaching. Faculty members are engaged in clinical medicine, educational programs and research. Genetics, reproductive assisted technologies, reproductive endocrinology, oncology, maternal fetal-medicine, ultrasonography, family planning, minimally invasive surgery and urogynecology are among the many areas of faculty interest; many have international reputations. We also have a system of faculty advisors and mentors who help guide residents through this process of clinical and academic development. A formalized mentoring program was developed in April 2003, whereby interns are assigned to faculty mentors. Residents and mentors are encouraged to meet throughout the year. In every aspect of our residency, the faculty are guided by the belief that we must simultaneously provide both outstanding training experiences and superior patient care.
