Program Description

This is a 4-year Obstetrics & Gynecology residency program located at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington. The program is supported by a full complement of generalist and subspecialist faculty, and boasts as being the only OB/GYN residency program complemented by a Maternal Fetal Medicine fellowship in the Military Health System. This gives residents direct access to the benefits of working with fellows who support and mentor research opportunities without requiring them to compete with fellows in surgical subspecialties for experience with complicated surgical cases. Residents also benefit from training with experienced Certified Nurse Midwives who provide mentoring through Centering Pregnancy as well as alternatives to the management of uncomplicated labor and delivery.

While a majority of training occurs onsite at Madigan Army Medical Center, it is supplemented by rotations at local hospitals in Tacoma, Washington. Having the opportunity to work with civilian providers exposes the residents to a wide variety of pathologies and socioeconomic situations that are not commonly encountered in the military population. They also gain experience and knowledge in alternate motivations and drivers that affect the delivery of quality health care. All training is done in the local area by engaging community hospitals to supplement educational opportunities so residents are not required to spend time in remote locations.

Famous for its scenic landscapes, vibrant arts and culture scene, and diverse culinary attractions, the Pacific Northwest is consistently among one of the best places to live. There is no shortage of outdoor adventures from whale watching in the San Juan Islands to skiing the slopes of Crystal Mountain to exploring the wine country of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, all providing a reprieve to bolster resident wellness.
