The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University is an institutional leader in resident education.
It provides the environment in which residents will master the principles of obstetrics and gynecology. The residency program will prepare its graduates to practice independently, act as expert consultants in their medical community, and enter subspecialty training or academic medicine. The residents act as teachers of, and role models for, the physicians of the future. The residency is committed to excellence, education and compassion.
The residency program in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Augusta University is a four-year progressive program. The program accepts five residents per year. All first-year (PGY-1) appointments are made through the National Resident Matching Program.
