A Message from the Chair
On behalf of our faculty and staff, welcome to the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh! We take great pride in our delivery of clinical excellence, robust research program, and long-standing commitment to educating and training emerging young professionals to deliver compassionate, high quality care and serve as leaders within their chosen fields.
Centered at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC – ranked 12th in the nation by U.S. News for our specialty care in gynecology - our clinical program continues to expand our reach and even wider geographic range to now serve Western, Central and select regions of Northern Pennsylvania. Our highly accomplished department faculty is devoted to the investigation of the full spectrum of diseases associated with the health of women and infants and is equally dedicated to translating these clinical and basic scientific findings into new clinical applications. Our collaborative efforts with the group of world-renowned scientists at Magee-Womens Research Institute further enrich our groundbreaking investigative endeavors and allow us to bring innovative surgical and medical approaches to patient care.
The department continues to take an active role in the teaching of medical and graduate students. We have instituted a diverse set of formal educational opportunities that prepare our residents and fellows for practicing evidence-based medicine and a career in academic medicine. Furthermore, as part of our core mission, we strive to provide the highest level of education and training to our faculty, private practitioners, and other healthcare providers that is an open-ended continuum with integration of all the subspecialties, and create a highly satisfied professional environment for our faculty, staff, and students.
We appreciate your interest and invite you to learn more about our exceptional team of faculty, fellows, and residents and our various clinical, research, and educational programs.
