The mission of the department is to provide to the medical students, residents, fellows, as well as to the community of obstetricians and gynecologists, the programs and learning environment to stimulate their curiosity and creativity and to develop the professional skills and human qualities required to deliver specialized care in Women’s Health. Our focus is to pursue the search for new knowledge where research programs will encompass basic science, epidemiology, clinical investigation, health service studies, and evaluation of technology and clinical care delivery systems.
