OBGYN Schools and Universities in the U.S.
Obstetricians care for pregnant women and their babies before, during and after childbirth. Gynecologists focus on the health of the female reproductive system. Generally, these two fields are studied in unison in an OBGYN program. OBGYNs must earn a bachelor's degree and graduate from medical school before starting their residency training program.
How to Select an OBGYN School
OBGYN schools are called residency training programs and are offered by teaching hospitals or clinics, often in conjunction with a local medical school. Residency programs for OBGYNs are required and are available only to postgraduate medical students.
Consider the following when looking for OBGYN schools:
- In order to qualify to take the OBGYN board exams, residents must complete a program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
- Since residents will be receiving most of their education from the hospital or clinic that they serve at, in addition to spending many rotation and on-call hours there, choosing the right medical center for residency is important.
- An additional matter when choosing an OBGYN residency is whether training in sub-specialties is offered.
