Ob/Gyn Residency Research Requirements

Research is an important focus of our ob/gyn residency. Residents present a research project during their fourth year at the department's research day. Residents publish abstracts of their senior project in the DrexelMed Journal. Senior residents must also submit their project for the resident research contest sponsored by the Obstetrical Society of Philadelphia and present a poster of their work at the Drexel University Research Day. The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Drexel University College of Medicine is now in the top 20 out of 125 academic institutions for NIH research funding.

IHelP Program

All of our residents must participate in at least one Innovative Health System Project (IHelP) during the program. These are resident-driven, quality improvement, patient safety, or program or institutional support projects that are facilitated by faculty mentors.
