Today, 41 obstetricians/gynecologists serve on the active medical staff at Lankenau, 16 current faculty attending physicians trained through this program. The program involves four post-doctoral years. Residents function as a team with the attending staff, medical students, nurses and non-medical personnel. Our program is approved for four residents/year.
