OB/GYN Residency Program

Sampino_1-20-12Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, in conjunction with the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, offers a comprehensive and progressive residency in the specialty of obstetrics/gynecology.

The OB/GYN Residency Program is designed to accommodate the individual learning needs of osteopathic physicians who plan to pursue a career in obstetrics/gynecology.  Postgraduate training in OB/GYN focuses on all aspects of women's health care, emphasizing primary care in the curriculum.  The role of the obstetrician/ gynecologist in providing total women's health care is an integral part of the training program.

The didactic needs of the postgraduate trainee are met through lectures, journal clubs, case presentations and teaching rounds.  Senior OB/GYN residents are key to the successful rotation of students and other house staff members, providing constant and consistent support, while encouraging the continued learning process.

VulloContinuity of care is provided within the structure of the Martin Luther King, Jr., Community Health Center, a facility cofounded by Good Samaritan and the Suffolk County Department of Health Services. Postgraduate trainees see a wide variety of both obstetric and gynecologic patients, following these patients through their course of treatment inclusive of deliveries, surgeries and routine screenings.

The four-year training program is tailored to the specific needs and career interests of each resident. Upon completion of the residency program, the postgraduate trainee will be well equipped to manage medical and surgical problems in all aspects of the specialty.
