Obstetrics and Gynecology

The Obstetrics and Gynecology Program offers residents the opportunity for hands-on training in reproductive and surgical care. Our partner health systems provide the community with general obstetric and gynecologic practice, as well as subspecialties, such as gynecologic oncology. Residents also recruit patient followings at two continuity clinics. These multi-specialty family health centers offer a variety of services and provide care to a wide range of populations across South Jersey.
