Ob/Gyn Residency Program

Experience the country’s largest obstetrics and gynecology residency program at UT Southwestern. 
 With a cohort of 18 residents per class, we train a remarkable number of obstetrician gynecologists each year – approximately one of every 80 Ob/Gyns in the United States is a graduate of our program. Our reach extends nationwide, meaning you can encounter our accomplished graduates throughout the country. 
Our ACGME-accredited, four-year training program is designed to prepare residents for successful and autonomous practice in obstetrics and gynecology.
We are dedicated to shaping future obstetrician gynecologists by providing unparalleled education, abundant research opportunities, and comprehensive clinical experience.  

Our esteemed department faculty, under whom our residents train, literally wrote the book on what we do. If you've read the pages of Williams Obstetrics or Williams Gynecology, you've already started learning from UT Southwestern experts, the authorities in the field.

Where We Train

We offer residents a vibrant clinical environment at two main clinical sites: the exceptional UT Southwestern William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital and the renowned Parkland Memorial Hospital. Between these two sites, residents deliver approximately 40 babies per day and perform an impressive 1,300 hysterectomies each year.

Parkland Memorial Hospital, our primary teaching facility, averages more than 250,000 ambulatory visits and 12,000 deliveries each year. With one of the busiest Labor and Delivery wings in the country, the hospital offers our residents exposure to unparalleled clinical volume and variety. Moreover, Parkland is home to Dallas County's first neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), which is the largest Level III NICU in the region.  

At our flagship, William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, trainees are exposed to leading-edge technology and advanced approaches to patient care. 

Designed to foster collaboration and team-based learning, Clements University Hospital features numerous "touch down" spaces strategically placed to provide small groups space to address emerging issues. On patient floors, dedicated teaching areas serve to facilitate physician rounding and trainee education as well as interdisciplinary care team meetings to develop personalized, collaborative treatment and care plans for each patient.

As part of their training, residents also rotate through Children's Medical Center Dallas, expanding their experience and knowledge in pediatric and adolescent obstetrics and gynecology.

Research Opportunities 

We recognize and support the diverse career interests of our residents. Despite our program not having a resident research requirement, approximately half of our residents actively engage in clinical research. 

UT Southwestern residents who participate in research are highly productive, and their work is consistently accepted at prominent national meetings and conferences, including those held by ACOG, AAGL, SMFM, SGO, ASRM, and SGS. To facilitate our residents' professional growth, we cover the travel and registration expenses associated with presenting their work at such events. Additionally, our residents receive funded ACOG Junior Fellow Memberships, which provide access to valuable resources and networks. 

Each year, the UT Southwestern Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology hosts a stimulating Research Symposium to provide residents and fellows a platform for sharing their ongoing work with their peers, mentors, and other faculty members on campus. This event encourages collaboration and celebrates the contributions our trainees make to the advancement of knowledge in the Ob/Gyn field.  

After Residency 

Our residents’ career interests vary, with about half going immediately into independent practice and half choosing to pursue a fellowship post-residency.
