The UNC Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology is an active research department, ranking #3 nationally in NIH funding (2020). Many of our faculty, fellows, and residents are actively addressing questions around health disparities and patient-centered approaches to caring for marginalized groups. Whether exploring how racism impacts post-Cesarean pain control, how we can provide respectful and evidence-based care for incarcerated women, or the origins or racial disparities in endometrial cancer, our clinician researchers are tackling challenging questions to help discover more just ways to provide care.
