If selected for an interview we will contact you through ERAS. On the day of your schedule interview all candidates will attend Grand Rounds. We host weekly Grand Rounds and bring in speakers through around the country. After Grand Rounds, interviews will the faculty will begin. After the interview, a few residents will provide a tour of Hutzel Hospital. We encourage all candidates to stay and have lunch with the residents and faculty. It's a great opportunity to ask any final questions and get to know the residents.
Learning occurs within a broad spectrum of formal and informal experiences. The program offers residents the ability to study with departmental faculty, university scholars, invited, international guest speakers, and the approximately 900 plus other residents and fellows training in the Detroit Medical Center. Faculty and residents work together in daily morning reports and rounds. Journal clubs, conferences, weekly grand rounds, web-based self-tutorials, American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology review materials, and mortality and morbidity conferences provide forums for educational advancement or a basis for discussion to nurture clinical expertise. An annual allowance for educational materials (e.g., books, software, and chief resident course support) is budgeted for each resident. Regular classroom teaching sessions remain an integral part of the curriculum and are protected on a weekly basis.
The last week of June, first-year residents have a seven-day clinical orientation. The aim of the orientation is to introduce incoming residents to the clinical domain of the Obstetrics and Gynecology resident and, most importantly, to minimize anxiety for their first days on service on Labor and Delivery, on Gynecology and in the Operating Rooms. ACLS and BLS certification take needs to be complete before Orientation. PALS Certification will take place during Orienation.
The program is fully supportive of and compliant with the ACGME duty hour regulations. We believe that we can provide a quality educational experience within this framework that emphasizes time for adequate rest and out-of-hospital activities.
Each year the residents partake in a retreat. This is an opportunity for residents to spend time together away from the hospital, discuss ideas on how to continue to improve and strengthen the training program, and most importantly, to have fun!
