Residency Program


Dear Resident Applicant

Welcome to the web page for the University of South Florida Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program! Here you will find information about our residency program, our curriculum, the residency application process, and living in Tampa Bay.   

Who we are   

Our program is a 4 year ACGME accredited residency in general obstetrics and gynecology. We were recently approved for a total of 6 residents per year.

We are proud to be a part of the USF department of Ob-Gyn, one of only a small number in the United States that also houses a fellowship program in four of the ACGME accredited subspecialties: female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, gynecologic oncology, maternal fetal medicine, and reproductive endocrinology. This is an objective way that we can show how dedicated our faculty are to education, and the ongoing scholarly efforts in our department. Although we do not have a fellowship in the newly accredited subspecialty of Complex Family Planning, we are proud to be a Ryan Residency Program.

Our residents train at Tampa General Hospital, which was recently named the #1 hospital in the state of Florida by US News and World Report, and is the highest ranked hospital with an Ob-Gyn residency training program on that list in the state. Tampa General Hospital is one of only three hospitals in the Tampa Bay area to receive international recognition as a Baby-Friendly® designated birth facility by Baby-Friendly USA, Inc and has earned the distinction of being No. 1 in the country on Forbes' America's Best Employers for Women list.

Our residents also rotate at Moffitt Cancer Center located conveniently on the USF main campus, which is a nationally renowned cancer center. We have a close relationship with our colleagues at Planned Parenthood, and our residents rotate through their clinics during select rotations. We also have two outpatient clinical sites, the TGH Healthpark Genesis clinic where residents have their continuity clinics and the USF South Tampa Center.

The best asset we have as a program is definitely the residents that make up our USF Ob-Gyn family. They are intelligent, hard-working, and care about each other and their patients. They deliver high quality care to the women in this community and internationally, are active in research, and are strong teachers in their own right to each other, our medical students and other learners including the Physician’s Assistant Program students that rotate through our units.

We strive to do so in an environment that promotes scholarly activity, enhances interpersonal relationships, and celebrates diversity with a mindful eye toward resident, fellow and faculty wellness and resilience.
