    Ambulatory Care:

    Paley OBGYN:

    Paley OBGYN is the office practice of the resident obstetrician-gynecologists of the Department of OBGYN and is a full service primary women’s health/obstetrics and gynecology office. Each resident has a continuity office one half-day per week (except when on Nights), following a patient panel over all four years of training. PGY I residents team with a PGY IV resident for initial intensive work in office skills.. There are also specialty care clinics in Maternal-Fetal Medicine and colposcopy.

    Dr. Philip Horn is our Medical Director of the Paley office. He works closely with the residents, the office manager and staff to ensure the best practice learning environment for the residents as well as consistently maintaining and upholding the highest standards of patient care and safety. Paley OBGYN uses an electronic medical record (digiChart), a relational medical records system that imports most laboratory data directly from laboratories and our department’s antepartum testing unit.

    Care is structured in 10 half-day office sessions per week with the following schedule:

    MondayHigh Risk OB Clinic - PGY IV on MFM and other OB residentsContinuity Office of PGY IV GYN Resident (with PGY I partner)
