Inova Women's Hospital provides a state-of-the-art physical environment in which our residents learn and is a major referral center for complex obstetrical and gynecologic care. Our ACGME fully accredited program is comprised of 24 bright and talented residents. We initiated our OB-GYN residency training program in 2013; however, training outstanding physicians in women's health at our institution is not new. Our large patient volume, range of acuity and diagnoses, availability of exceptional educational and clinical resources in addition to our team of respected physicians made Inova Fairfax Hospital a coveted training site for OB-GYN residents from other university programs for over 35 years.

In designing our residency program, we have created a learning environment that will not only provide a comprehensive clinical experience, but also close mentorship with faculty who support career exploration, research and personal growth. Simulation activities are integrated throughout many aspects of education. Our individualized curriculum focuses on the strengths and interests of each individual resident. As such, all residents are progressing through a competency-based and ACGME Milestones focused curriculum.

The residency program enjoys strong support from department and hospital leadership. Resident input is routinely solicited and integrated to improve the program. Our proximity to Washington, DC allows residents the opportunity to participate in patient advocacy, health care policy and reform. This website is structured to give you an introductory understanding of our hospital, our department and our residency training program. If you would like more information about this exciting, fast-paced training program, please contact us.
