Department Chair

In the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Langone Health, we are dedicated to providing high-quality clinical care, to training the next generation of leaders in the field, and to conducting innovative research.

Our department offers physicians-in-training exposure to obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound, management of menopause, obstetrics and gynecology infectious disease, maternal–fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, gynecologic oncology, family planning, and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. We provide comprehensive medical student education, a four-year residency program in obstetrics and gynecology, and fellowships in gynecologic oncology, maternal–fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.

Our physician–scientists pursue obstetric and gynecologic behavioral and population health research in topics ranging from sex- and gender-based violence to gynecologic cancer. Translational laboratory research projects include exploring amniotic fluid stem cells and the role of estrogen in neuroendocrinology. We also conduct clinical trials in maternal–fetal health, postmenopausal health, family planning, female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, and gynecologic cancer.

Our educational and research activities provide a solid foundation for a broad range of clinical services and reflect our mission of improving the health of women during all stages of life.
