If it’s summer, then it’s time for Emory Gynecology and Obstetrics to welcome a new class of residents. Training the next generation of leaders in gynecology and obstetrics is a responsibility the department takes seriously, and we’re proud to offer a top-notch training program that provides opportunities to serve diverse patient populations, protected time for didactics, research opportunities and extensive hands-on experience.
The new residents are:
Vinita Alexander, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine
Elise Bardawil, Drexel University College of Medicine
Katie de Souza, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine
Erin Duncan, Emory University School of Medicine

The interns began orientation on June 24th with a warm welcome from Residency Program Director Jessica Arluck, MD. Orientation includes everything from an introduction to the Emory Healthcare system to hands-on training. The new residents had a chance to practice neonatal resuscitation, knot tying and suturing, and delivery simulations.
