International Research Programs

The Division of Medical Education at the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology  recognizes the importance of incorporating global health training as well as international research and academic collaborations for our residents and faculty.  Recently, the Department has signed an academic partnership agreement with the University of Costa Rica to promote such opportunities. International research collaborations have also been developed with other countries in South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.
