The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency at The University of South Alabama utilizes the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG) objectives as a model to ensure a comprehensive education in the specialty. This is done using a combination of clinical and surgical teaching, formal didactic sessions, surgical simulations, organized rounds, and impromptu talks. Some of the various methods are described below:

Week 1: Simulation Lab: Residents interact with a variety of state of the art simulators to learn in a protected environment. 
Week 2: Small group projects designed to encourage interactive thinking and group participation. These are performed on a variety of subjects.
Week 3: Journal Club, GYN M&M, Primary Care Lecture Series.
Week 4: OB M&M, Pathology lectures.
Week 5: Interactive lectures/ case presentations with Urogynecology, Reproductive Endocrinology, Gyn Oncology or Maternal Fetal Medicine.

Also every September the residents are in the Anatomy Lab for dissections with an anatomist and faculty from the department.
