UCSF Fresno Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency

Welcome to the UCSF Fresno Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program

It is the mission of the UCSF Fresno Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology to promote Women’s Health in the Central California by providing innovative and excellent patient care, training the next generation of physicians and advancing patient-centered research.

Our accredited academic program blends evidence-based clinical training, in-vivo and laboratory based simulation, research, and formal didactic educational experiences to prepare graduates for private practice, academic positions, or subspecialty fellowships. We are a regional campus and major teaching site of the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine, teaching 3rd year OB/GYN clerkships as well as 4th year elective students in general OB/GYN as well as maternal and fetal medicine. Our faculty members hold appointments at the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine, and have received numerous awards for distinction in teaching.

The residency program is based at Community Regional Medical Center, a 685-bed regional academic medical center that serves a large and diverse patient population. Our hospital is the only tertiary care center in our region and operates the largest emergency room in California and the only level one trauma center between Los Angeles and Sacramento. More than 5000 births occur annually at CRMC, and high risk OB patients are referred from fifteen hospitals in a region delivering 50,000 babies per year. Plans are underway to add another 100 beds to the medical center as well as to build an 800 bed replacement hospital with a Women and Children’s Tower.

The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program at UCSF Fresno is committed to serving women’s health care needs by providing a wide range of routine, complex and highly individualized services. From basic obstetrical and gynecological care to high-risk prenatal care and delivery management and urinary incontinence evaluation and treatment. As the only referral center for a 100 mile radius, we provide care to many underserved patients in both rural and urban communities. Community Regional Medical Center strives to provide the support we need to care for our patients including; a state of the art Emergency Department, Cyber knife, 84 bed level III NICU, 22 bed L & D with 3 dedicated ORs and dual console da Vinci Robot surgical system.
