Obstetrics and Gynecology
Welcome to Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and our Residency Program
in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
A Message from the Program Director
Yvonne Wright-Cadet, MD
Residency Program Director
Newark Beth Israel Medical Center Residency Program in Obstetrics and Gynecology
has cutting edge technology, diverse clinical rotations and a warm comradery
among our staff to offer residents unparalleled preparation for their
careers in medicine.
The OB/GYN Residency Program at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center is a
well-balanced educational experience. Our residents care for a mix of
urban and suburban patients within a department that provides both primary
and tertiary services. By providing them with both practical and academic
training and balancing supervision with progressive autonomy, we believe
we offer an ideal framework for the education of a houseofficer in Obstetrics
and Gynecology. In addition, our residents are exposed to techniques of
clinical research, robotics, and managed care.
We are proud that our residency program offers an experience that provides
future OB/GYNs with the knowledge and skills to provide superior patient
care as well as providing a sound foundation for further training in the
subspecialty areas of Gynecologic Oncology, Maternal Fetal Medicine, Reproductive
Endocrinology and Urogynecology.
About the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology provides primary and tertiary
levels of care for women in central and northern New Jersey. The Department
is composed of 11 full time specialists and subspecialists in obstetrics
and gynecology. In addition, there are many voluntary attendings who provide
services and utilize our subspecialty expertise. The Department is also
home to an active midwifery practice, as well as a core clerkship in obstetrics
and gynecology for medical students from St. George’s University,
Rutgers University and New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic
Medicine. Additional providers include a certified genetic counselor,
a registered dietician, social worker, and registered diagnostic sonographers.
The centerpiece of the department is a fully-approved residency with 16
resident physicians. In recent years, the majority of our graduates have
remained to practice in the community and a few have gone on to fellowship
positions in Urogynecology and Maternal Fetal Medicine.
Our Labor and Delivery suite includes 11 LDRs, 6 triage rooms and 2 operating
room suites. Two fully-equipped operating suites and a conference room
complete the LDR suite. Our Labor & Delivery unit has eleven laboring
rooms along with a separate triage area, two fully-equipped operating
suites and a resident conference room. The outpatient facilities are housed
within the hospital complex in the Family Health Center. State-of-the-art
equipment for colposcopy complements the extensive resources available.
The OB/GYN Ultrasound Lab houses five state-of-the-art ultrasound machines
with both 3-D and 4-D capabilities.
