Working together with our expert surgeons, our residents leave the program with excellent hands on training in robotic surgery.
Obstetrical Inpatient Facilities
The philosophy of the inpatient unit is a Mother-Baby Care Unit, in which mothers and their infants are encouraged to share the same hospital room. Rochester General Hospital’s Birthing Center received special recognition beginning in 2000 with its designation from the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund as the first “Baby-Friendly” hospital in New York State. In this environment, residents are encouraged and taught to promote and support breast-feeding mothers.
Pediatrics and Neonatology
The Women's Center (TWC)
The Women’s Center is where each resident follows a group of patients in a private practice setting throughout the duration of their residency. Residents see patients in their office session one half day every week during the four years of the program. An OB/GYN attending physician is present at each of the continuity practice sessions to consult with and supervise residents on a variety of clinical situations. This continuity model provides a valuable opportunity for residents to become familiar with the practical aspects of managing patients in ambulatory settings.

Criteria and Requirements
- USMLE scores are an important consideration; applicants with scores of at least 220 minimum for Step 1 and 2CK are given preference and must be passed on the first attempt. Step 3 is not required for an interview but must be passed before the end of the first year of residency. For DO students, COMLEX 1 & 2 are accepted with a minimum score of 520 on COMLEX 1.
