OBGYN Medical Education Career Advising and Mentoring

Career Advising Series

The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences offers several career advising sessions a year designed to give students the opportunity to ask questions of faculty members and physicians practicing in a variety of settings and subspecialties. Also available are the ObGyn Interest Group (OGIG) and mentoring opportunities with faculty members or residents (Big Sib Program). In addition, we host an Annual Career Dinner and a Match Celebration dinner to offer information about the residency matching process and to give students the opportunity to ask graduating students questions about their experiences.

May - Match Celebration Dinner.  Celebrate with the Matching Students!  Rising MS4s are invited to this session to do a Q&A with the students who have Matched into OBGYN.  Next scheduled: May 2021, TBD

June-August - Residency Application Meetings.  Matching students meet with the education directors, residency directors and Chair of the OBGYN Department for advice on application materials, personal statements, letters of recommendation and targeted programs.  Scheduled by invitation.  If planning to match in OBGYN, contact Ida Shunk: [email protected]

September - Fall Career Advising Session.  All students interested in OBGYN, including visiting Sub-Is, are invited to this advising session to meet with groups of OBGYN Faculty, Fellows and Residents for advice in pursuing the profession.  

December - Fourth Year Planning Dinner.  Rising MS4s meet with the Education Directors to get advice on scheduling their fourth year and planning their residency application.  Next scheduled: December 2020, TBD.
