The program provides an excellent environment to train highly skilled obstetricians and gynaecologists while fostering residents who have interest in subspecialty training.

Our faculty and residents are the highlights of the program. All department members are committed to a resident focused environment with strong, supportive teaching and learning opportunities.

The level of obstetrics training each resident receives is unique to our program. Our laparoscopic training and diversity of patients/cases are excellent.  We have a tremendous amount of support for resident research that includes a dedicated research advisory group.

The Residency Program has developed a strength in international health advocacy work with both faculty and residents being committed to this endeavour.

Residents are provided tools to become outstanding clinical teachers. This commitment parallels the department’s vision of improving women’s health and providing the best training experience in Canada.


Resident involvement in research is a mandatory requirement of the program.  Each resident must complete a research project in manuscript form by the end of residency and present their project twice with at least one of those presentations at the Annual Departmental Academic Day.  Residents receive training in research design and are encouraged to present their projects at local, national, and international meetings and conferences.  The Department Resident Research Advisory Group provides assistance and mentorship to the residents.  The group is chaired by Dr. Roxana Geoffrion.
