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. 3 in clinical reputation. This is the fourth year in a row the residency has been in the nation’s top three.
The Residency Navigator program lists can be sorted (or ranked) based on several qualities, including reputation, research output and program size. The rankings shown above are sorted by reputation, indicating that these residency programs are among those that board-certified physicians hold in the highest regard for quality of clinical training.
AnnaMarie Connolly, MD, vice chair for education and residency program director at UNC OB-GYN, says the ranking reflects the department’s commitment to UNC’s missions of teaching, research and service.
“We are absolutely delighted by the most recent Doximity rankings, which again ranks our OB-GYN residency program number three in the nation,” says Connolly, Annie Louise Wilkerson, MD ’36 Distinguished Professor of Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery,
“With this year’s rankings, our program has been in the top three for four years. This consistency and excellence, as recognized by our national peers, truly speaks to the outstanding educational commitment and effort that goes into the care of our patients and our educational programs, particularly our residency program, each and every day. It remains a privilege to work with such patient centered, educationally oriented residents, fellows and faculty.”
