Baylor Health Care System’s Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency program combines a diverse patient population with an attending faculty committed to teaching. This results in physicians who are prepared to handle emergencies or complications. Five residents are approved for each year of the four-year program and assist with approximately 5,000 deliveries a year, including considerable operative deliveries and cesarean sections. Residents also benefit from extensive experience in vaginal and abdominal gynecological surgeries, as well as gynecologic oncology, urogynecology and infertility surgeries.
The majority of Baylor OB/GYN resident education comes from working with patients in attending physician’s private practices where they are exposed to a myriad of practice styles and philosophies. Residents also work in an outpatient clinic. Each resident is part of a small team, similar to a small group practice. Senior residents, acting as senior partners in a group practice, head the teams. An attending physician is present in all clinics for consultation and assistance.
Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, where residents also train, is a tertiary referral center for northeast Texas. Labor and Delivery, observation/triage and antepartum services are connected by one central electronic monitoring network. The Women and Children’s Services are closely aligned at Baylor Dallas. The labor and delivery unit features three operating rooms and 18 Labor-Delivery-Recovery (LDR) rooms. Adjacent to Labor and Delivery is a six-bed observation/evaluation/triage unit for obstetrics. The postpartum unit and newborn nursery are located in the Truett building. Adjacent to this is the Jonsson building where the antepartum unit is located.
The intermediate care nursery, gynecology unit and 83 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) beds are located In the Hoblitzelle building. The outpatient clinic is located on the second floor of the Hoblitzelle building and Labor and Deliver is directly one floor below. Our residents manage wide variety of complicated high-risk pregnancies.
Physicians who have graduated from our program have continued in fellowships, academic settings and private practice. They are equally comfortable entering academic medicine or private practice.
