Obstetrics & Gynecology Overview
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga offers a comprehensive 4 year program with 4 positions offered at each level. Our program is affiliated with Erlanger Medical Center – the region’s only level 1 trauma unit, quaternary perinatal center, and tertiary neonatal intensive care unit. Both the Obstetrics and Gynecology services are extremely active, with approximately 3500 deliveries and more than 5000 gynecologic procedures each year.
Currently seventeen academic faculty members work with the residents daily, along with an additional 27 volunteer faculty who supervise residents across both obstetrics and gynecology curriculums. Academic faculty members represent the areas of general obstetrics/gynecology, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, gynecologic oncology, maternal fetal medicine, urogynecology, and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. All faculty practice primarily within the Erlanger health system, such that 24 hour in-house faculty supervision of residents is established.
Residents are actively involved with faculty in clinical research and patient safety and quality improvement projects. Research is further supported by a research coordinator hired by the College of Medicine. Study design and statistical assistance is available through scheduled appointments. Our residents have several articles in publication and have presented at national and international conferences.
