UTHSC OBGYN Residency Training Program

Welcome to the FB page of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency Training! UTHSC values excellence, caring, respect, health equity, integrity, diversity and knowledge.

As the flagship statewide, public, academic health system, the mission of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is to bring the benefits of the health sciences to the achievement and maintenance of human health, with a focus on the citizens of Tennessee and the region, by pursuing an integrated program of education, research, clinical care and public service. Employing more than 6,000 people on its faculty, staff and not-for-profit corporation faculty practice groups, UTHSC contributes more than $4 billion to the economy of Tennessee. In 1911, the University of Tennessee first launched its Memphis campus, dedicating it solely to health science education and research. Seed programs in medicine, dentistry and pharmacy quickly flourished, and within a few short years, new programs were initiated in health professions, graduate health sciences and nursing. Each of those programs grew to become a college in its own right. In 1963, the UT Graduate School of Medicine in Knoxville, based at the UT Medical Center, became part of the UT Health Science Center. In 1974, the UT College of Medicine in Chattanooga, based at Erlanger Health System, joined the UTHSC system. In 2014, Saint Thomas Health in Nashville began collaborating with UTHSC to create a Nashville campus. UTHSC has more than 3,000 students and more than 1,300 residents and fellows training in 87 ACGME programs.

ACGME - Accreditation Data System (ADS)

From the ACGME e-Communication - July 20, 2020

NEW! ACGME Resident/Fellow Portal Update
Launched in early 2020, the new ACGME Resident/Fellow Portal in ADS was developed as a tool for residents/fellows, giving them additional access in ADS. The Portal gives residents/fellows access to:
• Milestone evaluations
• Program-level aggregated results of their Resident/Fellow Survey reports
• Edit personal information
In specialties and subspecialties that do use the ACGME Case Log System, residents and fellows already have access to these features and do not need to sign up separately. For programs in specialties and subspecialties that do not use the Case Log System, residents and fellows must be added to their program’s roster prior to creating a Portal account. Once added, residents/fellows can go to https://apps.acgme.org/ads/public/residentportal/search, or click Resident/Fellow Portal from the ADS login page, and enter their relevant information.

apps.acgme.org Residents/Fellows of non-Case Log Specialties: If you are in or entering into a specialty that uses Case Logs, you do not need to create an account here. Once your program adds you to their roster, an account is automatically created; please contact your program if you have not received an auto-gene...

[07/21/20]   From the ACGME e-Communication - July 20, 2020

NEW! Obstetrics and Gynecology
Complex Family Planning Application Available
The application for complex family planning is now open in ADS. The specialty-specific application is available on the Program Requirements and FAQs and Applications page of the Obstetrics and Gynecology section of the ACGME website.

Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Case Log
The Review Committees for Obstetrics and Gynecology and Urology have reviewed and updated the female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery index categories. Required minimum procedural experiences have been established and are effective beginning with the 2021 graduates. The Committees recognize it may take time for programs to acclimate to the new minimums and citations related to the minimums will not be issued until July 1, 2022.

The female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery Case Log System will be updated in mid-September, after all off-cycle 2020 graduates complete the program.

The document Case Log Information: Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery can be found on the Documents and Resources page of the Obstetrics and Gynecology section of the ACGME website. The document provides important guidance on properly logging procedural experiences.

Media Advisory – Tennessee National Guard Salutes Medical Professionals with Flyover

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – C-17 and KC-135 aircraft from the Tennessee Air National Guard will salute the state’s medical professionals and first responders during a statewide flyover Tuesday, May 12.

The flyover, which is part of normal flight crew training and maintaining pilot proficiency, will coincide with National Nurses Week which ends May 12.

Aircraft from the 164th Airlift Wing (C-17) in Memphis and the 134th Air Refueling Wing (KC- 135) in Knoxville will fly over dozens of hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout the state. The full list of flyover locations and approximate times are listed below. All times are local and subject to change.

“We are incredibly grateful to the men and women serving our state in the healthcare field. This flyover is a small token of our appreciation,” said Col. Jason Glass, Assistant Adjutant General, Tennessee Air National Guard. “When you look to the skies on Tuesday, remember to say thank you to the Tennesseans all across our state who are working to protect us from this virus.”

More than 963 Airmen and Soldiers have volunteered from the Tennessee National Guard in response to this pandemic.

“The response to this pandemic has required a team of teams approach combining multiple agencies in a unity of effort. Our National Guard team gets a chance to work alongside our civilian and State healthcare personnel every day,” said Maj. Gen. Jeff Holmes, Tennessee’s Adjutant General. “This flyover is our opportunity to acknowledge our interagency and civilian teammates vital service on the front lines of the battle.”

Resident Training Program

Under the leadership of Interim Chair, Claudette J. Shephard, MD, Program Director, Danielle L. Tate, MD, along with the assistance of Ms. Paula Odom, Program Manager, the mission of the OBGYN Residency Training Program is to educate residents in the entire breadth of the discipline of obstetrics and gynecology, and to foster a lifelong commitment to the promotion of women’s health care.

The four-year training program was first accredited at UTHSC in 1970 and has continued accreditation by the ACGME. Our program welcomes nine new interns from a pool of more than 700 applications each year through the NRMP and we have become one of the more desirable locations to undergo training in the country. Our residents come from all regions of the United States and international schools. The program searches for well-rounded students with superlative academic records, a passion for OBGYN, and a drive to serve the underserved. Prospective applicants must be selfless, motivated, and compassionate, with an understanding of issues endemic to the Mid-South, and a determination to find answers in complicated cases.

UTHSC OBGYN residents, once accepted, rotate through Low-Risk Obstetrics, Benign Gynecology, Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Oncology, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, the Surgery Intensive Care Unit, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Urogynecology, and Ambulatory Services. It is a training experience aimed at providing residents with all the skills needed to succeed in any OB/GYN situation. While training is based at Regional One Health, residents gain experience in hospitals across the Mid-South, including Baptist Women’s, Methodist, and the Memphis VA Medical Center.

Residents in their third year are given the opportunity to present original research before a group of instructors and peers at the Annual Resident Research Forum. National and international guest lecturers are invited to judge the research each year. The diversity among our patients, students, residents, and faculty is truly an asset. We have a supportive family of residents and faculty, in an environment that facilitates a balance of learning and living for the young physician, making this an attractive place to train.

Additionally, the department organizes the Fetal and Neonatal Imaging Conference and the Contemporary Issues in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CIOG) Conference, both national conferences. The annual CIOG Conference is targeted to generalists, residents, nurse practitioners, midwives, and primary care physicians. It is held in Destin, Florida, and 2019 marks the 33rd anniversary of this conference. National and international speakers take part in both conferences.
