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 sub-specialties. Also available are the ObGyn Interest Group (OGIG) and mentoring opportunities with faculty members or residents. In addition, we host an Annual Career Event and a Spring Match Panel to offer information about the residency matching process and to give students the opportunity to ask graduating students questions about their experiences.
