OB/GYN Residency Program

Dr Marty Tucker and residents talkingThe faculty and residents of the University of Mississippi Medical Center would like to thank you for your interest in our program. UMMC is Mississippi's only academic medical center and receives high-risk maternity and gynecological patients from all 82 counties in Mississippi as well as from the adjoining states of Louisiana, Arkansas and Alabama.

Our program currently accepts six residents per year. We have a very diverse group who have completed medical school training all across the United States.

Our staff members include generalists, physicians, and nurse practitioners trained in gynecologic oncology, reproductive endocrinology, urogynecology and maternal-fetal medicine. We also have an excellent three-year maternal-fetal medicine fellowship that accepts two fellows each year.

The faculty and residents at UMMC have established a tradition of teaching and learning proven to develop outstanding obstetricians and gynecologists practicing across Mississippi and numerous locations throughout the United States.

Resident knowledge and experience are gained on all OB/GYN services through core didactics, conferences, rounds and daily supervision by faculty. Additional experience gained by each resident occurs during his/her participation in the educational process of other residents and third- or fourth-year medical students.

GOAL

The goal of the OBGYN residency program is to prepare physicians for independent practice in general obstetrics and gynecology. At the completion of residency, trainees will be eligible for board certification.

The objectives of the program are based on CREOG Educational Objectives: Core curriculum in obstetrics and gynecology, 12th ed. These objectives are covered in the clinical rotations and didactics.
