On May 29, we had our annual Resident Research Day which was a resounding success! At 1:00, our Distinguished Speaker, Dr. Carolyn Westhoff from Columbia University presented on Venous Thromboembolism among Reproductive Age Women. From 2-5pm, our third year residents presented their research projects. Click here to read more about their projects.

On October 30th and 31st, we held our Annual Conference, “Challenges in OB/Gyn: Pearls for Practice” on the University campus. It was well attended by over 175 physicians, midwives, fellows, residents, medical students and nurses from throughout the Midwest and Florida. The Conference was a great success, thanks to the outstanding contributions from our distinguished external and internal faculty, along with our dedicated conference organizers and staff. This year, the conference will be on October 29-30. Please visit the conference webpage to learn more, and mark your calendar! Confirmed Distinguished faculty include Dr. William Kutteh (Vanderbilt University), Dr. David O’Malley (Ohio State University), Dr. Lauren Plante (Drexel University) and Dr. Alex Stagnaro-Green (University of Illinois College of Medicine, Rockford).

We are welcoming two new Maternal Fetal Medicine faculty this month: Dr. Laura DiGiovanni and Dr. Micaela Della Torre. In addition to providing excellent patient care and education for our medical students, residents, and fellows, Dr. DiGiovanni will serve as Director of Obstetrical Ultrasound and Dr. Della Torre will serve as the Assistant Director of the Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship. Please join us in welcoming them!

We are currently recruiting for two faculty positions. We encourage you to apply. Please check out the links:

Our diverse faculty and staff are committed to moving the Department forward through their hard work and passion for excellence in patient care, education and research. Feel free to stop by my office to discuss the exciting changes to our growing Department.
