The Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center residency program in Obstetrics and Gynecology prepares you for the rewards and challenges of this specialty.

Our training is structured around the concept of providing comprehensive, cost-effective medical care, including health maintenance and preventative care.  We strive to promote a caring approach to an evidenced based practice that balances inpatient and outpatient experiences.  Our goal is to provide a humanistic approach to residency education without compromising our high standards for residency training.

Our educational philosophy encourages both personal and professional growth in our resident staff.  Our department includes 43 full-time, board-certified OBGYN physicians, 3 Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioners, 2 Certified Nurse Midwives and eight lactation nurses.  We have fellowship-trained specialists in Maternal Fetal Medicine, Gynecologic Oncology, Urogynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.  The department’s faculty, residents and personnel proudly reflect the ethnic diversity of Los Angeles.

Throughout the four-year program, you will encounter a humanistic approach to training.  Our team-centered approach to health care is mirrored in the entire Medical Center. Our faculty and residents interact regularly with house staff and faculty in other specialties.  LAMC houses residency programs in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, General Surgery, Pediatrics, Urology, Radiology, Radiation Oncology, and Neurology.

The OBGYN residency program at LAMC is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.  Residents gain experience in all aspects of Obstetrics, including training in Maternal Fetal Medicine, Reproductive Biology and Genetics.  Gynecologic expertise is developed both in the operating room as well as with office procedures, with multiple rotations in gynecologic surgery, minimally invasive surgery, office procedures and simulation.  With in-house presence of all subspecialties (Maternal Fetal Medicine, Gynecologic Oncology, Urogynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility), there is routine interaction with scheduled instruction with a full breadth of OBGN experience.   Because of a night float system, our residents are able to concentrate on learning in their day rotations without call interruption.

It is our goal that residents who complete our residency program will be well trained, full spectrum obstetricians and gynecologists with a good understanding of the subspecialties that make up their discipline.  Graduates from our program will be able to provide high quality, evidenced based, obstetric and gynecologic care in a comprehensive, cost-effective and compassionate manner.
