Residency Program

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NewYork-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medicine provides comprehensive training to the next generation of leaders in the field. Our main clinical site is the Weill Cornell Medicine campus of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Residents also have rotations at the NewYork-Presbyterian campus in Queens throughout the four years.

Our faculty from both hospitals are dedicated to fostering a rigorous and rich learning experience. Our program includes clinical training in Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Gynecologic Oncology, Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery, Complex Family Planning, Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, as well as Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Research opportunities and mentorship are also plentiful in all the subspecialties.

Weekly conferences include departmental grand rounds, morbidity and mortality conference led by residents, as well as weekly tumor board, gynecology pre-operative conference, and bi-monthly NICU/OB conference.  Residents have protected educational time for didactic teaching every week away from all clinical duties. Our program also boasts a robust simulation program conducted through the Skills Acquisition & Innovation Laboratory (SAIL).

New York City is an amazing place for our residents to live and to learn. The hospital conveniently provides affordable housing options close to the medical campus for residents. New York City is a mecca of culture and entertainment, and our residents take advantage of all that the city has to offer. One activity our residents love is their annual team building retreat, where they find engaging and interactive experiences around the city while enjoying each other’s company and growing as a team.

Our residency program embraces the value of diversity in every definition including, but not limited to, sex, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, geographic background, religious belief, and age. Our department recognizes the importance of creating an inclusive training and learning environment. Furthermore, we believe that fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion in our trainees are essential for achieving excellence in patient care. We are looking for applicants who bring enthusiasm, compassion, and innovation, and for those with diverse identities, experiences, and backgrounds.
