Welcome to the website for the OB/GYN Residency Program at Riverside Regional
Medical Center! We are a community hospital based program performing an average
of 3,000 deliveries each year. Our residency program began training doctors in the
1950's and has been accredited with the ACGME since 1971.
The OB/GYN Residency at Riverside Regional Medical Center is a Traditional four
year program. We are a community Hospital based program with an average of over
3,000 deliveries each year. We have 22 all private post-partum and ante-partum
rooms and 12 Labor & Delivery rooms. There are 2 dedicated obstetric OR rooms
in the L&D Suite.
Our residency is currently structured with 3 residents at each of the 4 years. We also
have residents on service from the Family Medicine Program. We have medical
students from VCOM, VCU and EVMS who rotate through the program. We have 5
approved full -time Generalist faculty positions and actively involved private practice
faculty. Maternal Fetal Medicine Faculty manage our high risk clinics and are full time
contracted to provide teaching and supervision for our residents. We have our own
rotations for our formal training in Gyn-Oncology. This is supplemented with cases
from many generalist on staff of RRMC who do limited oncology surgery. We also
have full time Neonatalologists and / or neonatal nurse practitioners in house at all
times. We likewise have in-house anesthesia full-time. Our level II neonatal intensive
care nursery is currently licensed for 21 beds.
As a community program, we strive to provide quality care to our patients and to
improve the health and well-being of our community. Our graduates become well
rounded OB/GYN's, ready to move on to the next step of their career, be it private
practice or fellowship, here in Hampton Roads or across the country. There is
close mentorship between the residents and both the core and extended faculty.
Our supportive learning environment allows residents to grow and thrive. Our
curriculum is able to focus on strengths and interests of each individual
resident as they progress through a competency-based and ACGME
milestones focused curriculum.
We encourage you to explore our website and learn more about our program.
Thank you for your interest!
