Patients on the inpatient teaching services include those in the categories of normal obstetrics, high-risk obstetrics, benign gynecology, gynecologic oncology, urogynecology, and reproductive endocrinology.
The inpatient teaching services include resident service patients from the OB/GYN Clinics and the Emergency Department as well as private patients of the full-time and private medical staff. The patients are admitted to the Greenville Health System Women’s Hospital, which includes several units: labor/delivery/recovery, High Risk Obstetrics, Gynecologic Oncology, and Women’s Surgery. The residents also are directly involved in the care of private gynecologic and private obstetric patients, which enhances the diversity of the residents’ experiences and training.
The outpatient setting serves a broad spectrum of patients from primary OB/GYN and all of the subspecialties. The OB/GYN Center has 23,000 visits a year to the resident service. Residents also see patients at the Greenville County Health Department to gain experience in the contraception, post partum care and sexually transmitted disease management. The 20,000 patient visits to the department facility provide learning opportunities for the residents in the subspecialties.
