Message from the Program Director

Sarah Page-Ramsey, MDThank you for visiting the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Joe and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine Residency Program in OBGYN. We are proud of all our program has to offer, and we are excited to share it with you!

Our main goal is to train highly skilled obstetrician/gynecologists who are ready for independent practice or progression to additional fellowship training. We are committed to ensuring that our resident complement is a diverse group of physicians who can establish meaningful connections with the patients they serve.

Our residents receive outstanding clinical training in both obstetrics and gynecology. Their obstetric training is strengthened by our placenta accreta spectrum referral program, unique maternal transport program, MOMMIES opiate use disorder program, obstetric emergencies simulation program, and our designation as a level 4 maternal center for the State of Texas.

Residents gain ample training in managing high-risk pregnancies, operative obstetrics including forceps and vacuum, Cesarean hysterectomies, and the management of obstetric emergencies and obstetric critical care. We also provide a robust gynecologic experience for our residents. Our unique women’s gynecologic emergency center, transvaginal ultrasound experience, office procedures clinic, and family planning clinic provide a phenomenal ambulatory gynecology experience.

Due to our University Health System, UT Health San Antonio, and community referral basis, residents gain ample surgical education and experience in laparoscopic, hysteroscopic, robotic, vaginal, and open surgical approaches. All residents obtain certification in Essentials in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (EMIGS) and are able to obtain robotic surgery certification.

At our program, we want to inspire our residents to shape their training experience to support their individual passions and career plans to become the OBGYN they want to be! We want our graduates to stay involved – whether through community engagement, legislative efforts, academia, quality improvement, or industry — to help advance women’s healthcare in their future.

As such, our residents take on leadership roles within the institution and nationally to foster their interests while also contributing to our specialty and community. They serve as officers on the housestaff council, as members on hospital and institutional committees impacting our healthcare system, as officers for ACOG and other national organizations to contribute to legislative change and policy, and as teachers to our students and patients.

Our residents’ research has resulted in numerous publications and presentations! Our residents contribute to major meetings and organizations such as ACOG, ASRM, AAGL, SMFM, AUGS, SGO, SASGOG, CREOG, APGO, SAGES, and NAMS to name a few. We help our residents to find the right mentorship and avenues to succeed at their own personal goals and interests during their training.

Above all, I am proud of our residents because of their hard work, compassionate care, dedication, and enthusiasm for the field. I couldn’t ask for a better group of physicians to lead alongside our outstanding faculty. As you look at our residency program, I hope that you will be able to feel the culture, support, and camaraderie that makes San Antonio a truly awesome place to train!
