Welcome to the Department of OBGYN

Welcome from Our Chair

Welcome to the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine. I am privileged to lead an accomplished faculty, staff, and resident team all of whom are focused on our mission to improve the lives and health of women. We are proud of our academic heritage and we are devoted to the pursuit of excellence and innovation in clinical care, research, scholarship, and advocacy. Our faculty are actively engaged in women’s healthcare policy development and we value our strong connection to the community.  The department is committed to providing the highest quality of patient services; to educating health care providers and scientific investigators; to training our future doctors; and to conducting and promoting research to advance knowledge in our field.

Our department is located at the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey.  We are a member of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS).  Rutgers University is one of the largest and oldest academic institutions in the country.  We are centrally located within the state, which makes it convenient to both Manhattan and Philadelphia.  We serve a diverse population of women and we encourage close collaboration across clinical disciplines. Our education and training programs attract the best and brightest students, thus ensuring that future generations of exceptional healthcare providers and researchers will be provided to serve our community. We seek to attract talented and motivated individuals who hope to make a difference in the world.

Our faculty, residents and fellows are involved in a wide range of clinical, translational and basic research projects. Our department actively collaborates with investigators at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ), the Child Health Institute (CHI) and Eric B. Chandler Health Center. The department maintains busy clinical divisions in general obstetrics and gynecology and all the subspecialties including maternal fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology, gynecologic oncology, urogynecology and family planning.  Additionally, we have established programs in robotic surgery, minimally invasive surgery, adolescent gynecology, vulvovaginal health, sexual health and women’s wellness. We provide personalized healthcare to meet the needs of patients across their lifespan.  

Thank you for your interest in our training and educational programs, and in our many fine clinical services. Our website provides additional information and we welcome your questions or comments.
