Goals and Objectives

The educational objectives of the program are to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes of an obstetrician and gynecologist. As a guide we use the Council on Resident Education of Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG) educational objectives - core curriculum for residents in obstetrics and gynecology; Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, or ACGME, program requirements for residency education in obstetrics and gynecology; and educational objectives for postgraduate education of the American Urogynecologic Society. In addition, we have a multitude of mini-curricula designed to enhance the educational experience and to facilitate each resident’s learning style.


The department of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville has been engaged in and committed to clinically applied research for many years. In continuing with this practice, obstetrics and gynecology residents are required to complete a research project during their second, third and fourth years (PGY 2, PGY 3 and PGY 4). Each project is specific in its focus and goals. Both institutional as well as departmental support personnel are active in facilitating each resident’s research agenda. In addition, the college encourages resident research through the availability of Dean's Fund Research Awards and an annual Research Day held every spring. Well-designed studies conducted in collaboration with the faculty have resulted in residents presenting their research at regional, national and international meetings as well as publishing their work in peer review journals. Funding is made available for these presentations and residents are strongly encouraged to publish the results of their scientific projects.
