We are an academically oriented program focused on training residents as providers for women’s health care and as consultants in the specialty.

"I chose Einstein because I wanted a program that would provide a rigorous clinical training with a diverse patient population and pathology. The program director and resident staff are friendly and available for concerns which creates an environment that consistently seeks improvement. "

– Pamela Escobar, M.D.

"I chose Einstein because of the opportunity to provide world class care to an underserved population with an amazing variety of pathology. My mentors at Einstein share the same values and are always eager to have me participate in patient care."

– Julie Gutierrez, M.D.

"I wanted a residency program that prepared me to be a competent and confident OB/Gyn. I knew that Einstein had the ability to help me reach my goals. The opportunity to learn from renowned faculty and take care of an under served population simultaneously is extremely unique and something I feel so fortunate to have in my residency program. Also you get to live in New York City, which is a total bonus."

– Lauren Turker, M.D.

"I visited Einstein a few times before making my decision and each time I got the sense that the residents were graduating with the skills and confidence to be Ob/Gyn attendings anywhere. In addition, all of the faculty seemed to have great relationships with the residents they worked with, which I felt was also a great sign. Most importantly, the residents were welcoming and I felt right at home, so of course I had to choose Einstein."

– Ismely Minaya, M.D.

"I chose Albert Eistein College of Medicine because I wanted a program in which I would get plenty of experience while serving a diverse patient population. The people that I work with (residents, attendings, PAs, students) are amazing and everyone is interested in making sure that all the residents graduate feeling confident going into fellowship or practice. Finally Einstein is the best place for me to pursue my interest in basic science and clinical research in an academic setting with world famous scientists."

– Georgios Doulaveris, M.D.
