Judith T. Burgis, M.D. – Chair, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
The most commonly stated reasons for choosing a career in Obstetrics and Gynecology revolve around the wide spectrum of obstetrics, primary care medicine, and surgery - all in one specialty. Our program is designed to nurture these broad interests.
With the support of our faculty, we plan to continue the successful tradition established by the program's previous leaders to train practitioners who are well-prepared to meet the challenges of obstetrics and both ambulatory and surgical gynecology.
Our program offers a strong faculty, both in general obstetrics and gynecology, the recognized subspecialties (gynecologic oncology, maternal-fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology-infertility) as well as clinical genetics, ultrasonography, urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic surgery.
I look forward to meeting with you and discussing further my thoughts about obstetrics and gynecology and our excellent training program.
Thank you for visiting our website. We are delighted that you have taken an interest in the Palmetto Health Richland/University of South Carolina OBGYN Residency Program.
Our program has had tremendous growth over the past several years. The department boasts expertise in the fields of ultrasonography, maternal-fetal medicine, genetics, benign gynecologic surgery, including robotics, reproductive endocrinology, urogynecology, gynecologic oncology and pediatric and adolescent gynecology. Our residents enjoy a comprehensive didactic program which includes twice weekly core lectures, Grand Rounds, Journal Club, Morbidity and Mortality Conference, as well as Colposcopy and Fetal Monitoring conferences. The program has also developed a simulation curriculum in both obstetrics and gynecology.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of what we have to offer. I hope that you will take the opportunity to read through our program information carefully and I would encourage you to send us your application.
