Program Description

Grandview/Southview Hospital’s OB/GYN Residency program includes the ACOOG requirements for training in general Obstetrics and Gynecology, with a very active obstetric and surgical program based primarily out of the Southview Hospital. This is a four-year program, with both traditional and tracking positions. We have 12 AOA approved residency positions, with 10 positions funded and filled. When all twelve positions are filled, we will have 3 residents per year of training.

The surgical cases are a combination of private as well as clinic cases, worked up by the residents under direct supervision of the attending physicians. Obstetrical cases are a mix of private and clinic, all of which the residents actively participate in.

There is out-time training in all the sub-specialties. These include Maternal Fetal Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology, Gynecological Oncology, UroGynecology, Breast Surgery, Pathology, and Neonatology. Educational courses include a four-week ultrasound rotation and an ultrasound course for first year residents, with the second year resident attending a colposcopy course, and the ACOOG Fall Conference. Third year residents attend resident leadership development courses. The fourth year resident attends the Annual ACOOG Convention, and is encouraged to attend a board review course.

The residents currently see patients at Sycamore Women’s Center, the OB/GYN clinic, three to four days a week. Weekday mornings from 7-8am are reserved for an hour lecture or topic review. These mornings, the residents and attendings meet for an hour to review book chapters, Precis and Prolog topics, and ACOG technical bulletins. The residents participate in the 3 rd year OU Students’ CORE lectures given at the hospital on a monthly basis. They also help the 3 rd and 4 thyear students’ OB/GYN Case Conferences, acting as mentors for these students. Our residents also attend the OB/GYN RPAC CORE meetings held once a month in Columbus.

With the opening of the new OB unit at Southview Hospital in March of l998, our delivery numbers have skyrocketed. We are now doing approximately 160 deliveries per month, and anticipate continued growth of these numbers. Our surgery numbers are excellent, with an average of 10-15 major gynecologic procedures per week. Labor and Delivery completed a major expansion in 2003, going from 5 LDRs to 12 LDRs. We have 10 residents as of academic year July 2005, and will expand to 12 residents in the next two years.

This is a very busy and active residency. The residents spend most days consumed with either OB or surgery. There is very little down time during the day. Most of our subspecialty rotations are in town, with exceptions for particular interests made on an individual basis. We are proud to have graduated a resident who has now completed subspecialty training in Urogynecology at the Mayo Clinic, originally selected over 121 other applicants.

The OB/GYN Residency at Southview Hospital is an excellent, growing program. We train highly qualified, quality residents. Our residents have developed a “Standard of Behavior” Contract for each other, requiring, among other things, Teamwork, Respect, Courtesy, and Excellence. The residents are given a great deal of autonomy, and a great deal of responsibility. The resident graduating from the OB/GYN program at Grandview/Southview is second to none. Our resident graduates have a 100% pass rate on the Written and Oral boards.

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” (W. Yeats) Our OB /GYN residents light the way with their enthusiasm, determination, excellence, and knowledge. We hope to continue to brighten others’ paths as we learn and grow in the Grandview/Southview OB/GYN Residency Program.
