The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Women’s Health at the University of Louisville offers to women of our region:
Top-notch physician educators
- Our highly qualified, board-certified faculty physicians are nationally recognized for their medical competence and surgical skills. These physicians embrace a passion for education by serving as coaches, role models, and mentors to students, residents, fellows, and associates.
Areas of expertise
Our department provides multidisciplinary consultative health services in gynecology, obstetric care, maternal-fetal medicine, family planning, gynecologic oncology, endocrinology and infertility care, minimally invasive surgery, and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.
A patient-centered philosophy
Our patients’ needs come first. While physician trainees refine their technical competencies, we teach them by example to treat patients with sensitivity and compassion.
A ‘real-world’ learning environment
Future obstetricians and gynecologists have the unique advantage at the University of Louisville of working with patients in a private medical practice as well as in an academic medical setting. This experience provides a seamless transition from trainee to practicing physician.
An inclusive patient population
Each year, physicians affiliated with the University of Louisville and University Hospital provide reproductive health care services to 20,000 women and deliver more than 2,000 babies. Our patients come from a broad cross section of the greater Louisville and southern Indiana population.
We extol lifelong learning and inquiry. Our faculty physicians and research scientists participate in basic and clinical research on pregnancy outcomes, reproduction and infertility, and the treatment of gynecologic cancers. This work advances our knowledge enabling our physicians to offer the latest advances in all aspects of women’s health care.
