OB/GYN Residency Program Overview/Mission/Vision/Aims

SAUSHEC is a great place to train. It is the only Level 1 Trauma center, largest simulation lab and is situated in Military City, USA boasting very affordable housing. Training in OBGYN here is no exception. We have a 24-resdient program with all the subspecialties represented to include GYN ONC, REI, UroGyn and MFM. We deliver approximately 200 babies a month, and with our large retired population, ample surgery to go around with no fellows to compete with. We spend 4 months at Fort Hood, experiencing a large community military hospital with dense troop populations. We also work with several civilian physicians in town to increase our exposure to the civilian side of Obstetrics and Gynecology. We are committed to training competent and compassionate, mission ready OBGYNs through graduating level of autonomy. We require and encourage a loving and supportive environment that pushes residents to their full potential. Our graduates leave here ready to practice independently and with confidence whether stationed at a remote MTF or large training medical center.

Resident physicians are fully integrated into all aspects of patient care to include general obstetrics, benign gynecology, as well as all the represented subspecialty divisions (MFM, ONC, REI, UROGYN). At the time of graduation our resident are prepared and fully capable to perform the full spectrum of obstetrics and gynecology care for active duty and dependent women. Additionally, it is our goal to train and develop military officers who understand the importance of military readiness and the unique aspects of military medicine. Residents will be expected to maintain compliance with all military training and requirements as well as maintaining fitness for duty.
