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

Fall is a busy and exciting time for the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our Interns who started in July are now an integral part of our team and they are going to be exceptional OB/Gyns!

Last year’s Annual 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, our “Challenges in OB/Gyn: Pearls for Practice” Conference will be on October 29-30, 2015. Please visit the conference webpage to learn more, and mark your calendar! This year’s Distinguished Faculty include:

Dr. William Kutteh, Vanderbilt University
Dr. David O’Malley, Ohio State University
Dr. Lauren Plante, Drexel University
Dr. Alex Stagnaro-Green, University of Illinois College of Medicine, Rockford

Plus several of our outstanding faculty! Topics include chronic pelvic pain, recurrent pregnancy loss, critical care in obstetrics, uterine cancer, fecal incontinence, thyroid disease in pregnancy, ethical issues of very preterm deliveries, and fertility preservation for women with uterine cancer.

Residency interviews for July 2016 begin in November; this is an exciting yearly undertaking for our faculty and residents. We all look forward to meeting medical students from across the country and abroad who are anticipating a career in obstetrics and gynecology.

We recently received the list of 2015-2015 America’s Best Doctors. Please join me in congratulating the following clinicians for being peer-recognized nationally for their excellent patient care!
