Hospitalist Advanced Training Program

The goal of the Obstetrics & Gynecology Hospitalist Advanced Training Program is to provide the necessary experience and mentorship for trainees to become leaders in inpatient OBGYN Medicine, quality, safety, and trainee education.

Program Overview

The Obstetrics & Gynecology Hospitalist Advanced Training Program is a one-year program for OBGYN physicians who have completed residency and who desire to acquire additional knowledge and skills, so that they may serve as:

  • Experts with advanced skills to provide all phases of obstetric care
  • Resources to all providers of obstetric care
  • Extensions of Maternal-Fetal Medicine services
  • Educators for learners at all levels (students, residents, and fellows)
  • Labor and Delivery leaders to effectively advance quality improvement and patient safety for all patients
  • Gyn hospitalists for in-patient and emergent gynecologic care 
Core Program Components

The U-M Medical School Obstetrics & Gynecology Hospitalist Advanced Training Program provides a concentrated 12-month experience, including:  

In-patient obstetric (antepartum/intrapartum/postpartum):

  • Tertiary referral antepartum care and ultrasound
  • Operative vaginal delivery and OASIS management
  • Complex Cesarean section, including hysterectomy
  • Management of obstetric emergencies
  • Family planning

Labor and Delivery unit leadership training:

  • Critical communication skills
  • Team building

In-patient gynecology:  

  • Rounding, management, and discharging of non-subspeciality Gyn in-patients
  • Staffing of Gyn consults in the emergency department and other in-patient services
  • Performance of urgent/emergent surgeries from emergency department consults
  • Performance of the Gyn portion of procedures to coordinate care for other surgical services

Trainees will participate in educating residents and medical students on the floor, in the operating room, and conferences. When serving as the Gyn rounder, trainees may also lead residents' weekly didactic sessions. Michigan Medicine has a wide array of training spaces, including a large simulation center to help with educational endeavors.

Trainees will participate in quality improvement (QI) and patient safety initiative training. Over the fellowship year, trainees will be expected to complete a QI project, including developing the research question, attaining IRB exemption, and completing multiple data-driven PDSA cycles. The QI project will culminate in a presentation to the department. Support is available for trainees who wish to translate their project into a publication or national presentation.

Fellowship Core Curriculum

The Department is home to 11 Board-certified and non-Board-certified clinical and research fellowships in obstetrics and gynecology. To promote cross-specialty collaboration, all trainees take part in our didactic curriculum. These are ½ day educational seminars on numerous topics relevant to clinical research and academic leadership.

Topics include research design and implementation, identifying funding opportunities, manuscript timelines and preparation, how to be an effective teacher and employment opportunities. In addition, the department sponsors social events for fellows and advanced trainees across all specialties to further encourage collaboration and to help fellows build both a professional and personal network.


Ongoing Educational Opportunities

The U-M Medical School Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is committed to the ongoing development and education of our faculty, staff, and learners. Each year, we provide over 100 CME activities for physicians and healthcare professionals to enhance learning and improve patient outcomes.
