Independent instruction by faculty and realistic models for complex procedures such as cystectomy and hysterectomy
provide a unique learning experience during these labs.
With the large active-duty, dependent, and retiree population in the area, our residents see many complicated obstetric and gynecology cases. The majority of the residency rotations take place at Madigan. Residents also rotate at Tacoma General Hospital and Swedish Medical Center, in Seattle, for twelve weeks each.
Madigan boasts a Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship. Our residents have the opportunity to work one-on-one with these fellows in performing procedures using state-of-the-art equipment. Residents gain exceptional experience with obstetric and gynecology ultrasound through personal instruction with MFM faculty in the DoD’s only AIUM accredited OB/GYN ultrasound facility.
All residents are required to perform a research project prior to graduation. This activity is well supported at the service and hospital level. This support includes funding to present papers at national meetings.
Military medical students interested in applying for Madigan's OB/GYN Residency are strongly encouraged to rotate on site. The selection process depends greatly on the opportunity to evaluate the candidate's knowledge base, commitment, work ethic, and communication skills. The optimal time to perform clinical rotations is MAY-OCT.
Student rotations may be arranged through the Madigan Graduate Medical Education Office at:
253-968-1511 or 1-800-544-3298, choose option # 2.
