The faculty of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology are actively involved in academic medicine at the local, regional and national level. Residents present scholarly work at the Kansas City Gynecologic Society meetings and have presented papers or posters at other regional and national meetings.
Friday afternoons are dedicated, protected time and all residents and faculty are expected to attend the department’s Grand Rounds and didactic programs. Grand rounds are aimed at exposing members of the department to nationally recognized speakers, cutting edge information, and thought provoking presentations on topics aimed at the post-graduate level. Following Grand Rounds, there are two additional presentations covering resident education. These didactics are an integral component of the residency. Conferences are designed to provide an educational base and to present and review current care management, as well as to assist residents in the development of necessary communications skills.
A variety of regularly scheduled teaching activities include:
- Ob/Gyn Grand Rounds
- Lecture series in Perinatology, Oncology, REI and Benign Gynecology
- Journal Club
- Perinatal Morbidity/Mortality
Speakers include visiting professors, faculty, fellows and residents.
