"I chose UT Southwestern for my residency because the level of the department’s expertise, dedication to excellent patient care, and desire to train competent providers parallels none. This program is one in which faculty members are truly dedicated to ensuring that each resident leaves our program very competent in all areas of Ob/Gyn."

"UT Southwestern’s obstetrics and gynecology residency is unique, because not only can you serve a population of underserved patients, but you can work alongside leaders in our specialty who literally write the textbook on what we do. Because our residency is large, we have talented residents from all corners of the globe with varied life experiences, perspectives, and knowledge, which encourages learning not only from our faculty but also your peers. It’s a really special place."

"UTSW is my home. I picked it first in 2016 when beginning my medical education journey, and I continue to return for the amazing learning opportunities and chance to serve our North Texas community. Our program’s goal is to provide our residents with the groundwork to successfully practice the breadth of obstetrics and gynecology wherever their future careers take them. As we navigate changes in reproductive healthcare in the state, I am excited to work with the residency and department leaders to reach this goal."
