A Day in the Life

Obstetrics and Gynecology

Work Day

The residents start their day between 6:45-7:00 am with morning rounds which includes an educational topic, a recent article review or CREOG practice questions. Residents then go off to their assignments. Each rotation is supervised by an appropriate mentoring attending and senior resident. On labor and delivery, the resident team is supervised by the perinatologist or laborist of the day. In clinic, the appropriate generalist or sub-specialist supervises the clinic team. The concept of graded responsibility is followed during all of our rotations.

A Day in the Life

Sign out rounds occur every afternoon at 5:00 pm when the night float teams take over. The night float team is advised by the in-house attending.

Life in the Lehigh Valley

Our residents and attendings have so many great things to say about their home here in the Lehigh Valley!

“I love that there is so much to do in the Lehigh Valley without having to be in a big city! You get the benefit of a smaller city (less traffic, easy parking, easy access to nature) but still have great dining, shopping and entertainment.” Becca Pisan, MD PGY3.
