Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program Mission

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) was established September 1991.  The Residency Program began July of 1993 and received accreditation from the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in January 1998.  Our mission is closely aligned with that of MSM.  We are committed to supporting the interface of women’s health and primary care with an emphasis on working in the community and with the undeserved.  We emphasize quality patient care along with pursuit of scholarly activity and meaningful research.

We have a diverse and dedicated faculty with demonstrated excellence in teaching.  The close interaction between faculty and resident is a major strength of our program.

We are excited that you are considering our program for your residency training and are committed to ensuring that you receive a fulfilling learning experience.
