The newly released 2017-18 Doximity Residency Navigator ranks the program No. 2, up from No. 3 last year.


The UNC Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology’s residency program is once again recognized as one of the best in the nation.

According to the Doximity Residency Navigator survey, which includes peer nominations from board-certified U.S. physicians, UNC’s OB-GYN residency is recognized as No. 2 in clinical reputation.

By this measure, the reputation of the program continues to climb each year. For 2016-17, Doximity ranked the residency at No. 3 and at No. 4 for 2015-16.

This year’s Residency Navigator includes more than 4,000 residency programs across 28 specialties.

Dr. Daniel Clarke-Pearson, chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the UNC School of Medicine, attributes this rise to the department’s commitment to recruiting the highest caliber residents to train with a dedicated faculty who are rooted in UNC’s missions of teaching, research and service.

“In our unwavering goal of improving the lives of women, we know it is vital to provide superlative learning experiences for the obstetricians and gynecologists of tomorrow,” said Dr. Clarke-Pearson. “Partnered with our world-class faculty, our residents have the opportunity to become excellent clinicians engaged in outstanding patient care, cutting-edge research that changes women’s lives and service to women across the state and around the world.”
