Research Day

Each year in May, the Obstetrics, Gynecology & Women’s Health Institute holds the Annual Research Day. This is a new tradition for the Institute with the first annual Research Day being held in 2016. There were over 100 attendees which included residents, fellows, staff, and past and present Chairs of the Institute.

PGY2 residents are required to present poster presentations of their research project. PGY3 residents will present their oral presentations. This is a requirement of the program and is led by Ruth Farrell, MD, Vice Chair of Research in the Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health Institute. At the 2016 Research Day, 13 residents and fellows did oral presentations of their research and 5 PGY2 residents presented their research in the poster session.

Each Research Day will have a Visiting Professor for our Key Note Address and a lunchtime lecture entitled “Innovations in Ob/Gyn” that will highlight fascinating research and clinical expertise within the last academic year.
