Once again, the UNC Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology’s residency program is recognized as one of the top in the country.

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. 3 in clinical reputation.

“In the ever-changing world of health care, providing a world-class training experience for future gynecologists and obstetricians is vital to the health of all women and their families,” said Dr. Daniel Clarke-Pearson, chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the UNC School of Medicine. “I am especially proud that we continue to recruit the highest caliber of residents to work with our dedicated faculty in creating knowledge in all areas of women’s health, as well as advancing women’s health care through research, teaching and service.”
