Residency Experience

Sioux Falls Family Medicine Residency Women's Health Fellowship (PGY4)

For those interested in providing women's health to rural or underserved communities, we offer a FP-OB fellowship with training in advanced obstetrics and gynecology, including high-risk obstetrics, surgical obstetrics, and gynecological procedures. This is offered in conjunction with a large tertiary care center providing women's healthcare to our region. Fellows will be expected to primary on more than 150 cesarean deliveries in their 11-month fellowship, in addition to learning to perform operative vaginal deliveries, gynecologic office procedures, high-risk pregnancy care, and neonatal resuscitation. Fellows will learn in an unopposed setting from OB-Gyn providers, see their own family medicine clinic panel, and help provide education for family medicine residents.
