Tufts Medical Center's Residency Program:

Tufts Medical Center has a long tradition of high quality training with excellence in all general and specialty areas of Obstetrics and Gynecology. We have active divisions in Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Gynecologic Oncology, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology, and Family Planning. Most of the residency training occurs at our home institution – Tufts Medical Center. In addition, our four partners – St. Elizabeth's Medical Center, MetroWest Medical Center, Lahey Clinic, and the Cambridge Health Alliance – make important contributions to increase the breadth and depth of the residents' clinical experiences. The program has a unique balance of university- and community-based experiences, evidence-based and cutting-edge practices, all with dedicated faculty and staff to guide and mentor the residents through their training. We maintain an elective rotation during the PGY-3 year which allows residents the opportunity to explore individualized curriculum enhancement such as international work, away rotations, and full-time research activities. In addition, residents are matched with career and research mentors to ensure that their goals are fulfilled to the highest potential.

Maine Medical Center's Residency Program:

Clinical experience is provided in the broad range of obstetrics and gynecology as defined by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The educational program is supervised by the Program Director and the Resident Education Committee, on which two residents sit. Full time faculty provide teaching and supervision in all clinical arenas. Residents enjoy a close working relationship with experienced obstetrician/surgeons in private practice. The program trains 16 residents each year. In addition to receiving a broad and intense clinical experience, residents are supported in completing a research project during their residency, as well as a quality improvement project. Our graduates have chosen a wide array of opportunities after residency: private practice, National Health Care practice, international practice, fellowships (GYN oncology, MFM, reproductive endocrinology, urogynecology, family planning) and academic medicine. The new Hannaford Maine Medical Center Simulation Center provides a state-of-the-art simulation training center.

Residents have opportunities to:

  • learn advanced laparoscopic skills in our simulation lab
  • participate as teachers in medical student education and development
  • be primary surgeons alongside Board Certified subspecialists in:
    • Reproductive Endocrinology
    • Gynecologic Oncology
