Women's Health Advanced Training Program

The goal of the Women's Health Advanced Training Program is to provide excellent, broad-based training in women-focused clinical medicine as well as foster academic leaders in women’s health.

Program Overview

Women's Health Advanced Training Program

Trainees in the Michigan Medicine Department of OBGYN Women's Health Advanced Training Program will be clinical instructors in the department of their residency training.

Each week, trainees will spend three to four half-days caring for patients in the office.

The remaining six to seven half-days will be filled with trainee activities including, but not limited to Specialized Training (in Women’s Mental Health, Adolescent Gynecology, Urogynecology, Breast Disease, Endocrinology, Adolescent Health, Pulmonary Diseases, Women’s Heart Disease, Complementary and Alternative Medicine), Continuing Medical Education Activities, Research (approximately one ½ day per week depending on your needs), and Administrative Time (up to one ½ day per week or per two weeks depending on your needs).


It is the expectation of submitting at least one paper for publication. Often Trainees arrive with research works in progress, which can be continued at Michigan Medicine. In addition, trainees will have opportunities to submit their research to national meetings.


The University of Michigan offers highly competitive salaries and generous benefits to our fellows and advanced trainees. Trainee salary will be commensurate with that of a House Officer at an equivalent level of training based on the HOA contract. More information about trainee salary, benefits, and employment eligibility are available on the University of Michigan House Officers Association website.
