The OB/GYN residency program at MMC is an ACGME-accredited program whose vision is to train competent physicians/surgeons who are compassionate patient care providers, life-long learner, teachers and healthy contributing members of their communities. In 2010, the OB/GYN residency program earned a five year accreditation cycle and was awarded two commendations from the Residency Review Committee for OB/GYN. Recently one of our faculty, Dr. Rebecca Hunt, won a national teaching award from the Association of Professors of Ob/Gyn (APGO).

Clinical experience is provided in the broad range of obstetrics and gynecology as defined by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The educational program is supervised by the Program Director and the Resident Education Committee, on which two residents sit. Full time faculty provide teaching and supervision in all clinical arenas. Residents enjoy a close working relationship with experienced obstetrician/surgeons in private practice. In addition to receiving a broad and intense clinical experience, residents are supported in completing a research project during their residency, as well as a quality improvement project.
