Welcome to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Illinois at Chicago!

Spring is a busy and exciting time in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology with Resident Match day, our Resident Research day, and the graduation of our fellows and fourth year residents.

Resident Research Day is Friday, May 29 from 1-5pm. At 1:00, our Distinguished Speaker, Dr. Carolyn Westhoff from Columbia University will present on Venous Thromboembolism among Reproductive Age Women. From 2-5pm, our third year residents will present their research 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 (University of California, Los Angeles) 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 Division Director of Gynecologic Oncology and a Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellow. We encourage you to apply. Please check out these links:
