Teaching medical students in basic clinical clerkships and advanced elective courses is integrated into the educational program.

The residency provides four years of progressive training in obstetrics and gynecology, qualifying the resident for specialty boards. It offers a unique opportunity for combining the educational and research aspects of a university department of Obstetrics and Gynecology with the outstanding clinical training and experience available in University of Connecticut Health Center, Hartford Hospital and New Britain General Hospital. There is a strong commitment to research by the department. Residents are exposed to research methods and thinking in reproductive biology and their applications to obstetric and gynecologic problems. Upon this foundation the program builds a broad and practical clinical experience, under careful supervision, which will help the resident develop responsible judgment, thorough knowledge of all aspects of the specialty, and perfection of surgical skill and technical ability in all obstetric and gynecologic procedures.
