Welcome to the website of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women's Health at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine. This website introduces you to the multitude of clinical, educational and research activities in the Department.
This Department has had a long and proud tradition of commitment to excellence in medical education training of both students and residents. The Residency Program is fully accredited by the ACGME (Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education) and the Director is D. Gregory Ward, M.D. We were re-accredited on 5/17/2012 for another 5 years. Our next site visit is in May 2017. The Residency Training Program is organized to provide during the fours years, a hands-on, broad experience necessary for developing the essential clinical and technical skills of a primary care and consultant obstetrician/gynecologist. Many of our residents also pursue academic careers and we do attach particular significance to the residents' involvement in research projects. The Medical Student Clerkship provides a Phase 3 Obstetrics and Gynecology rotation which incorporates a wide range of medical care services for women of all ages.
The Department serves a diverse population from the Greater Metropolitan Missouri, which seeks the special expertise of our faculty. The programs are based at St. Mary's Health Center, a tertiary referral center for a large geographical area in Missouri and Southern Illinois. Our training programs also incorporate other hospitals for maximum exposure to all available educational opportunities and faculty expertise: Saint Louis University Hospital, St. Luke's Hospital and other elective rotations.
The training programs are conducted in an atmosphere of academic collegiality. We firmly believe that a supportive environment is conducive to a long lasting personal and professional association between faculty, residents, and students.
You will find our programs innovative, stimulating, and foremost career enhancing. Thank you for your interest in our programs.
