The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, with a long-standing history and tradition, currently lists 34 faculty members, 19 fellows and 36 residents, and conducts patient treatment together with education for residents, medical students and research activities to provide highquality health care services for women throughout their lifespan. In 2009, it had 81,311 annual outpatient visits including 15,263 new visits and 66,048 re-visits.
We carried out 2,310 operations and there were 5,610 inpatients in 2009. In addition, our Department has been carrying out plenty of medical research projects. As a consequence of these efforts, it contributed about 140 entries in quality papers and major journals (domestic:94, foreign:48). The Medical students educational programs annually perform 42 hours of lectures and 80 hours of training per student.
The Medical training program for residents is continuously engaged in Saturday Seminars, Grand Round, and Journal Club, and weekly conferences according to the division. In close conjunction with pediatrics, pediatric surgery, pathology, therapeutic radiology and diagnostic radiology, we have created the Anomaly Conference, Tissue Conference and Gynecologic Tumor Board. The increased number of applicants for residents and selections in 2009 represents both the quantitative and qualitative improvements in our Department.
