The discipline of obstetrics and gynecology is concerned with the reproductive health of women. This concept implies knowledge that extends from embryology through gerontology. A prime objective of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is to present, and to add to, the current knowledge of the normal physiology and pathology of reproduction.

Major teaching and research efforts in the Department focus on several sub-specialty areas including maternal-fetal medicine, gynecologic oncology, reproductive endocrinology/infertility, and reproductive genetics. In addition, emphasis is placed on family planning and contraceptive technology, sonographic imaging, psychosexual issues, and computer applications in treatment, diagnosis, and research. The faculty integrates basic science and clinical research into clinical practice.

Medical students gain clinical experience in obstetrics and gynecology in Detroit Medical Center Hospitals: Hutzel Women’s Hospital and Sinai-Grace in addition to other affiliated hospitals: William Beaumont, Oakwood, Providence, St. John’s, and Henry Ford. The third year clerkship includes an extensive didactic course, as well as in-depth clinical experience. Further, clinical and research opportunities are available in all sub-specialty areas during senior elective periods. Summer student research fellowships are available, both in clinical research within the Department, and in basic research at the C.S. Mott Center for Human Growth and Development, where the Department’s basic science laboratories are located.

The graduate program concentrating in the reproductive sciences is included with the Doctor of Philosophy in Physiology.
