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.
