The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency at the University of Iowa is a four-year ACGME-accredited program that provides the surgical, obstetrical and subspecialty volume necessary for residents to become well-trained private practitioners or to pursue subspecialty fellowships.

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offers consultation, comprehensive treatment planning and a broad range of services for patients. A large proportion represents complicated or high-risk conditions, but services are provided for patients with normal and high-risk pregnancies and for gynecology, including oncology and reproductive endocrinology.

“My training at the University of Iowa has been outstanding and prepared me to be a competent, compassionate, and dedicated physician to the field of OB/GYN. The faculty has supported my growth as a physician, surgically and clinically, but equally as important, supported my growth as a person, mom, colleague, and friend.”

“I am thankful to have received such great training and feel prepared to go out on my own. I am most thankful for the care I received as a patient and the support from the staff and fellow residents. Our faculty have not only taught me medicine but also how to be a good compassionate doctor.”

“Iowa City will always be the place that made me a doctor. Everything I know about medicine and how to care for patients I learned here. Although I am excited for the next phase of my training, I will forever be indebted to the physicians at the University of Iowa for teaching me how to be a physician."

“I think of the University of Iowa as a place where you can get top-notch training among the most down-to-earth professionals you will ever meet. Not only has the faculty prepared me to be a competent physician, but I am a better person for having known them and having the chance to learn from them.”
