Banner Good Samaritan's OB/GYN Residency Program has had continuous accreditation since 1951, and the program is in compliance with all ACGME requirements. At the most recent RRC site visit, the program was fully accredited and approved for five years and was given no citations.
The residency program in obstetrics and gynecology is fundamentally a four-year program for those individuals who start immediately following successful completion of medical school. The program accepts eight categorical residents each year for a total of 32 residents.
We expect first-year residents to complete the full four years. There is no pyramid system.
