OB/Gyn​


The Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialty Research Group is a collaboration of research-oriented physicians who seek evidence-based strategies to improve clinical care. Our group seeks to raise awareness for current research in women's health occurring in the organization, and helping to identify opportunities for research collaboration that can drive improvements in care. Some topics of interest include, ambulatory gyn care, cancer prevention/screening, intrapartum care, prenatal care, disparities in care/mental health, delivery of care, and surgical outcomes.
