The Michigan Medicine Department of OBGYN Women's Health Advanced Training Program is a one-year clinically-focused program that provides trainees with a multidisciplinary experience to expand their expertise and focus in the field of Women’s Health. The program is open to physicians who have completed a residency in Family Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Psychiatry, Internal Medicine, or Pediatrics.
Our program is a collaboration between Obstetrics & Gynecology and Family Medicine with input and faculty contribution from both departments. Many previous trainees have capitalized on this collaboration to explore the unique clinics in Obstetrics & Gynecology as well as work with previous Women’s Health fellows in the Department of Family Medicine and Family Medicine faculty already providing more women’s health focused care.
We emphasize individualized goal setting for each trainee in a focused clinical area within the field of Women’s Health. Trainees will combine independent practice in their discipline with 70 percent protected time to explore and expand their women’s health-focused clinical interest. Trainees will also participate in monthly didactic sessions with faculty using seminal and recent publications with a focus on clinical decision-making.
Our trainees come to the University of Michigan with a variety of women’s health experience, expectations, and goals. We are committed to training anyone interested in providing women’s healthcare. We want to increase the group of providers focused on women’s healthcare, consciously recognizing and supporting training physicians who are representative of the populations in which they serve. Our graduates go on to join academic health systems, private practices, and community clinics and serve as experts in the field of Women’s Health.
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.
