OB/GYN Residency Program Receives Accreditation

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — The Obstetrics/Gynecology (OB/GYN) Residency Program in the School of Medicine at the University of California, Riverside has received accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the national organization that accredits US medical residency and fellowship programs and the institutions that sponsor them.

The program was accredited for a total of 16 residents. The first class of four residents will begin their training in July 2017. The four-year training program will enroll four residents each year, meaning there will be a total of 16 residents when the OB/GYN program is fully developed. Sponsored by the School of Medicine, the primary training site will be Riverside Community Hospital.

Residency programs provide the post-M.D. training required for physicians to become fully independent and board certified in their specialties. OB/GYN training programs are four years long and, during that time, residents provide patient care under the supervision of attending physicians who are faculty of the residency program.
