Fall is a busy and exciting time in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology with our Annual Conference, and faculty and residents interviewing medical students from throughout the country for our seven coveted 1st year OB/Gyn resident positions.
On October 30th and 31st, we held our Annual Conference, “Challenges in OB/Gyn: Pearls for Practice” on the University campus. It was well attended by over 175 physicians, midwives, fellows, residents, medical students and nurses from throughout the Midwest and Florida. The Conference was a great success, thanks to the outstanding contributions from our invited speakers and Department faculty, along with our dedicated conference organizers and staff.
We have welcomed several new faculty members this summer, including Dr. Autumn Davidson who joined Family Planning, Dr. Albert Asante who joined the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and Dr. Elizabeth Baron-Kuhn, Dr. Elise Abicht and Dr. Nuzhath Hussain who joined our Generalist Division. Two of our former residents, Dr. Clare Harney and Dr. Alexander Golobof, have joined our Labor and Delivery team on weekends.
I am also delighted to announce the recruitment of two senior faculty members. Dr. Sondra Summers joined us as Division Director of General OB/Gyn in August 2014. Dr. Dimitrios Mastrogiannis will be joining us in December 2014 as Division Director of Maternal Fetal Medicine.
With all this flurry of activity, our Department continues to expand! We have several new faculty positions presently and we encourage you to apply. Please check out these links:
