Program Components

Curriculum

Our OB-GYN resident curriculum focuses on progressive responsibility in a well-supervised, safe learning environment. Our goal is for our graduating residents to be fully independent to care for a wide variety of conditions, both medically and surgically.

Facilities

Rotation Sites

Loma Linda University Medical Center: Our main academic center training site encompassing the full breadth of obstetrics and gynecology.

Riverside University Health System Medical Center: A neighboring hospital providing residents exposure to complex obstetrics and gynecology patients in a county hospital setting.

SAC Health System: The location for our resident continuity clinics, housed in a federally qualified health center (FQHC). SAC provides the opportunity for supervised care for a longitudinal panel of patients.

Research

Our formal research curriculum exposes residents to innovative thinking from the start of residency.  Each resident:

  • is assigned a research mentor.
  • participates in formal didactic activities instructing residents in research methodology.
  • designs a research project over the four years of residency.  

Past residents have published articles in major journals and participated in poster presentations at regional and national meetings.

I chose to work here because the Christ-centered mission aligns with my life purpose. Collaborating with colleagues who place evidence-based medicine, integrity and superior quality at the forefront of patient care is why I continue to practice medicine here. Loma Linda University Health is the best!
