About Our Program
UPMC Harrisburg OB/GYN is an ACGME-accredited program with four residents per class. The program has 16 core faculty and over 25 clinical faculty who participate in resident training. We support a Maternal Fetal Medicine fellowship and have subspecialty training in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Gynecologic Oncology, Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. We also support a robotics curriculum. There are over 4300 deliveries per year of which 1250 are c-sections. Over 800 hysterectomies are performed yearly with only 15% being abdominal. We support 600 laparoscopic gynecologic cases (not including hysterectomy) and 200 operative hysteroscopy cases (not including diagnostic).
The main clinical site is UPMC Harrisburg with rotations at UPMC Lititz, UPMC West Shore, UPMC Memorial, and UPMC Carlisle.
The program would like to tailor the clinical learning experience to each resident utilizing our many resources. For example, someone looking for a more rural experience would spend time with our UPMC Lititz partners, but another wanting a fellowship might opt to head out to UPMC Pittsburgh.
