One morning each week is dedicated to resident education. The first week is dedicated to high-risk obstetric education, the second week to subspecialties, the third week is dedicated to the gynecology and the fourth week to simulation training. Lecturers may be resident or attending physicians. Residents are occasionally expected to lecture, as a significant part of residency is comprised of teaching medical students and eventually junior residents when one advances through the program.
