OB/GYN Residency

Join the next generation of doctors helping patients  lead their best lives

About us

Devote your future to OB/GYN and you’ll do more than build a career — you’ll guide your patients through nearly every major milestone in their lives. A patient’s relationship with their OB/GYN provider can last from the teens to the senior years, with each stage bringing new opportunities to improve their health and well-being.

During a Geisinger OB/GYN residency, you’ll develop the skills you need for a thriving career through exceptional clinical training alongside a talented and diverse faculty. Here, you’ll contribute directly to family and community health in northeastern and central Pennsylvania through surgical volume, obstetrical experience and subspecialty rotations. This is your chance to make a difference in a small community while preparing for a big future.

But the focus won’t just be on your patients — resident wellness is central to our values. During your obstetrics and gynecology education, you’ll feel supported and included through every step of your training. Our clinical, career and research mentorships place a premium on integrity and respect as you advance to greater responsibility. A Geisinger residency will empower and equip you with the skills you need for a future in academic medicine, fellowship training or private practice.

You’ll also discover a great place to live and work. Danville, where our residency is located, offers a laid-back atmosphere and quick access to endless outdoor recreation — yet it’s just a short trip away from Washington, D.C., New York City and Philadelphia. It’s the perfect place to launch a career that will last a lifetime.
