The Ohio State University-Mount Carmel Health Obstetrics/Gynecology Residency Program is taught by a dedicated faculty. Most members are board certified and recertified in obstetrics/gynecology and/or their particular specialty and continue to see private patients. This level of involvement ensures residents a real-world view of medical practice and of the physician-patient relationship.
