General Obstetrics and Gynecology at Emory

Message from the Division Director

John HortonThe Division of General Obstetrics and Gynecology provides a unique opportunity for house officers to become involved in comprehensive well-women's care, in normal and high risk obstetrical care, and in primary medical and gynecological care for women of all ages. This division provides the resident an education with experience in ambulatory patient care in a gynecology-obstetrics setting. Residents rotate through the faculty private practice at Emory University Hospital Midtown and participate in ambulatory care, inpatient hospital care, and both major and minor surgical care of patients. Surgical experience is gained by active participation in faculty surgical cases. The resident experience in general gynecology-obstetrics involves one-on-one clinical teaching between residents and faculty.

Finally, the division plays an active role in clinical studies currently being conducted at Emory University. Federally-sponsored and industry-sponsored projects both are available for residents who are interested in pursuing research relevant to this arena. This division emphasizes the development of professional work habits, efficient patient care methods, and comprehensive primary medical care.
