Welcome from the chair

Dr. David R. Bryant

Welcome to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, which for over a century has been recognized as a national leader in women's health and pregnancy care.

Our physicians are members of Wayne Health, the faculty practice of the Wayne State University School of Medicine. We are a multispecialty and interdisciplinary team of health care providers who use recognized best practices and the knowledge gained from cutting-edge research to provide highly effective and compassionate care. To learn more about our clinical services and locations, please see the Wayne Health site here. https://www.waynehealthcares.org/

We teach the clinicians and health care leaders of tomorrow. These include clinical learners from across the professional spectrum, many of whom remain in Detroit after finishing to give back to our community.

We achieve our research mission at our C. S. Mott Center for Human Growth and Development and the Perinatology Research Branch (the only intramural branch of the National Institutes of Health located outside of Bethesda, Maryland). We have longstanding and ongoing studies in spontaneous preterm birth, preeclampsia, infertility, and gynecological cancer.

Thank you for visiting our website. Please explore the faculty biographies, news, and other features that help to present a snapshot of the life of our department.
