Bridgeport Hospital serves a diverse patient population with respect to socioeconomic status, race, nationality and culture. We are committed to providing the highest quality and most compassionate care possible to all patients.
The Bridgeport Hospital Residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology participates fully in the National Residency Match Program currently with four positions available per year. We are seeking applicants with a strong commitment to patient care. Our program is highly selective. In addition to a strong academic record, we require our residents to have an evidence-based approach to clinical care, and demonstrate a collaborative communication style. As we are a Yale affiliated training program, it is expected that our residents will have an enthusiasm for teaching at all levels. We offer quality obstetric training with exposure to full time on-site Maternal Fetal Medicine faculty. As a resident, you will also have access to a thorough and diverse surgical experience with procedure volumes well above national averages. In addition to the full range of general and subspecialty gynecologic surgeries, residents will be exposed to the newest minimally-invasive surgical techniques, and gain extensive robotic surgery experience. Finally, there is a strong emphasis on outpatient experience in our Bridgeport Hospital Clinic.
Our residents will leave us fully trained as competent generalists in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Many have chosen to pursue highly successful careers in private practice. A sizeable number of our graduates have obtained additional training in a variety of subspecialties including Maternal Fetal Medicine, Female Pelvic Medicine and Reproductive Surgery, and Gynecologic Oncology.
We hope you will find the information provided on this website useful and that you will strongly consider applying to our program for your training in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
