Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology

Our Postgraduate Education Team

Meet our education team, with Dr. Gene Chang serving as Director of Education. Our responsibilities include patient care, research, and education. In fact, the latter priorities support the former, as we train excellent physicians who will both treat patients and pursue new and creative ways of caring for the population.

We have a tremendous faculty with a wide range of interests. Our residents are bright and compassionate individuals, and we have the privilege of working with the medical students at the Medical University of South Carolina. Explore our site and find out more about us. We are sure you will like what you see.

 

Ob/Gyn Residency

Residents gain the experience and skills in obstetrics, gynecology and women's health care they need in a progressive, supportive and collaborative environment from some of the field's top attending physicians.

Our rotation schedule covers the depth and breadth of obstetrics and gynecology - from routine and high-risk obstetrics to ultrasound, benign gynecology, gynecologic oncology, urogynecology and infertility. Our diverse patient population is also large enough that residents gain the experience they need for independent practice. Ten weeks as a third year resident are spent in Spartanburg, South Carolina, while the remainder of the third year residency is completed at the Medical University Hospital.

 

 

Ob/Gyn Fellowships

The Medical University of South Carolina is proud to offer two fellowships in Women's Care: the Reproductive Infectious Disease Fellowship and the Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply.

 

 

Research

MUSC’s Center for Women’s Health Research is changing what's possible in health care for women through innovative research, because we believe that our commitment to advance health care options for women in all stages of life improves not only individual lives and family lives, but the well-being of our community as a whole and beyond.

MUSC’s Center for Women’s Health Research supports the research efforts of our top-rated doctors. We have a wide range of clinical research studies in varied obstetric and gynecologic specialty fields such as: preterm birth prevention; environmental toxins and their effect on human reproduction and fertility; gynecologic cancer; family planning; pregnancy; and female pelvic medicine.

We are continuously striving to change what’s possible through women’s research, one study at a time. Because we believe that every woman matters.  

To learn more about the exciting research that is going at MUSC’s Center for Women’s Health Research, please contact Betty Oswald, Manager, by phone at 843-792-0347 or by email at oswaldbw@musc.edu. You can also visit SCresearch.org to learn more about clinical research studies throughout the state.

Obgyn Visiting Student Opportunities

As an academic institution, we are excited to provide opportunities for students who are interested in or those who are pursuing health sciences careers. Obstetrics & Gynecology is one of the core clerkships for third year medical students; we work with 185 third year students annually throughout our department. We also work to accommodate other students who are interested in Women’s Health. Contact Andrea Shrader with questions or visit the College of Medicine's site. In addition, there is scholarship available for the Underrepresented Visiting Student Program.  For more information please review our Obgyn Visiting Student Policy (PDF).

 

THEGOS

 

The Gynecologic and Obstetric Society (THEGOS) is our formal alumni association. Members include past faculty, past residents, current faculty, and chief residents.

THEGOS was fathered by Dr. EJ Dennis to honor Dr. Lawrence L. Hester. The first organizational meeting was held in 1966 at the Pine Lakes Country Club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Members gather once a year for Continuing Medical Education (CME) post graduate courses. The program positively benefits the camaraderie, education, and professionalism of its members.
