TAMPA, Fla. (Tuesday, May 16, 2023) -- AdventHealth Tampa is proud to announce the accreditation of its Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program, helping improve access to women’s healthcare in the Tampa Bay region. The four-year training program will provide a vibrant learning environment that combines robust clinical experiences, including hands-on experience, new ways of learning, and opportunities to develop professionally.
Dr. Nuthalapaty said the creation of an OB/GYN Residency Program like the one at AdventHealth Tampa is one of the best ways to help target the issue of health disparities.
"If you look at statistics throughout the world, the United States has the highest rate of maternal mortality of all developed countries in the world,” said Dr. Francis Nuthalapaty, who serves as the Program Director. "Starting a new residency program in Tampa allows us to begin addressing that issue by bringing great talent, and training them with evidence-based methods of care. Then, those same trainees that we take in are very likely to stay in this area and then contribute to our health system as a whole."
OBGYN residency programs are crucial for preparing the next generation of obstetricians and gynecologists to provide high-quality care to women throughout their lives, from adolescence to menopause and beyond. These programs provide residents with the experience and knowledge they need to treat a wide range of reproductive health conditions, including pregnancy and childbirth complications.
AdventHealth Tampa's residency program is unique in its focus on creating a culture of learning that aligns with our mission to extend the healing ministry of Christ. The program welcomes people from all backgrounds, encourages people to fearlessly express genuine caring, compassion, and empathy, and is deeply dependent on teamwork. The curriculum is evidence-based, employing the best practices in educational theory and state-of-the-art facilities.
"By obtaining this new accreditation, our Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program will become an integral component of state-wide efforts to improve the quality of women's care in Florida,” Dr. Nuthalapaty said. “This residency program is evidence of AdventHealth Tampa’s commitment to investing in our community to ensure high-quality, whole-person care and promoting health equity for all women in the region and the state.”
The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program will welcome new residents on campus in Summer 2024.
Applicants interested in our residency program for Obstetrics and Gynecology at AdventHealth Tampa must submit an application online via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) from the Association of American Medical Colleges by October 1 to be eligible for consideration.
