Mission & Goals

Mission Statement

The University of Kansas Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program provides a supportive, fair, and transparent environment for resident training and professional development that promotes excellence in education, collegiality, and joy in empathetic patient-centered practice.

We accomplish this through:

  • Advocacy for reproductive justice in our workplace, community, state, and beyond
  • Education as we teach our students and learn from our faculty
  • Equity by confronting the systemic and historic racism in medical care and addressing current disparities of care
  • Inclusion through diversity and the provision of a safe and supportive environment for the well-being of our patients, faculty, and learners
  • Transparency in scheduling and policy
  • Wellness as we take care of ourselves and each other

Our goals reflect the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical education (ACGME) core competencies of Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Systems-Based Practice, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, and Professionalism.
