In the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Langone, we are dedicated to promoting women’s health through excellence in undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical education.

We use educational technology and principles of adult learning to maximize the educational experience of NYU Grossman School of Medicine students in their preclinical and clerkship years, and through the department’s residency program, fellowships, and postgraduate courses. With a combination of simulation training, reflective practice, and self-directed learning, we apply the latest education research to our teaching.

We believe that the best way to ensure patient health is through a learning environment that considers the academic needs of our doctors-in-training as they develop from novice to expert. We encourage trainees to focus on the needs of individual patients and our local communities, become patient advocates, and learn about the issues that affect the health of women worldwide.
