Mercy Hospital St. Louis
I am very pleased you have inquired about our training program at Mercy Hospital St. Louis. The OB/GYN Residency prides itself on offering a comprehensive academic and surgical program in a community setting. In addition to having a broad-based general OB/GYN faculty, all the subspecialties are represented on site, located in the west corridor of St. Louis.
The large surgical and obstetrical volume provides a solid curriculum for the resident doctors. This is balanced with a protected academic time for lectures and conferences. Additionally, student doctors from sister institutions rotate through our services to augment their educational experiences. This provides an opportunity for teaching, as well as cultivating interest in student doctors with regard to the field of women’s care.
In today’s rapidly changing field of medicine, the residency program remains flexible in providing a continually changing curriculum, as well as the core disciplines. We are delighted that you have expressed interest in our program and would strongly encourage you to consider doing a 4th year rotation as an elective.
I look forward to having the opportunity to meet with you and discuss in detail our residency training program. Please accept my congratulations on pursuing a career in women’s health. I’m certain that you will find it constantly stimulating, as well as professionally gratifying as you move through your professional career.
