The changing environment of today’s world requires that healthcare professionals have new and multiple skills. It also demands the strictest quality in their performance. In the area of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Mexico, there are multiple challenges related to women´s healthcare. At present, of a total population of 112 million people, there are 57 million women who require medical attention, whose leading causes of death and disease still correspond to preventable or curable situations if detected and treated on time.
These needs coincide with the high level of technological and scientific development in the diverse branches of Gynecology and Obstetrics: Maternal-fetal Medicine, Reproductive Biology, Reproductive surgery and minimally-invasive surgery (endoscopy), Gynecological Oncology, Gynecological Urology, Child and Adolescent Gynecology. However, the active intervention by practitioners of this medical specialty can turn these challenges and opportunities into benefits for the health of the community.
Our state-of-the-art educational model responds to the current needs of women?s healthcare in our country and worldwide, fulfilling the academic objectives determined by our learning outcomes, in a multicentric with four base hospitals, two in the public sector and two in the private sector. In this program, Gynecology and Obstetrics Residents will find that the opportunity to transcend through the holistic health care and attention of women is a challenge experienced on a daily basis.
The aim of our Residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology program is to train exceptional Gynecologists who solve the health needs of women, according to the highest quality and safety standards, in hospital and ambulatory settings. It also seeks to prepare individuals with integrity and a humanistic outlook in their clinical, teaching and research practice, while strictly adhering to ethical principles and the standards of professional practice. Gynecologists who graduate from this institution are outstanding leaders locally and internationally. They use ultrasound technology to impact their patient?s health positively, by means of timely, accurate diagnoses, and also contribute to generating innovations in the use of and research on surgical techniques and the enhancement of medical and gynecological and obstetric medical treatments, ensuring a reduction in morbidity and mortality rates among the Mexican population.

Face to Face
On completing this program, graduates will be able to participate in the transformation and development of their community’s health through the following competencies:
Normal and Abnormal Obstetrics and its Complications. The most common causes of maternal morbidity and mortality are complications of obstetric hemorrhage, preeclampsia - eclampsia, and metabolic disorders of pregnancy, such as gestational diabetes and metabolic syndrome. We consider that knowing the incidence, detection and immediate actions that must be carried out when these complications occur has a high impact on reducing the effect caused by these problems. An important issue at the national level is the impact of teenage pregnancies, which is why the works that pertain to this special group of the population are included in this line. Therefore, it is important to match this theoretical knowledge with activities that allow the resident to acquire sufficient skills to understand, know and solve these complications and also be an agent of change by generating new knowledge by conducting research with a high positive impact on these topics.
Diseases of the Gynecological Organs and the Breast. This line was created to study the pathophysiological mechanisms, prevalence, and interventions of the most frequent pathologies related to benign and malignant gynecological diseases during all stages of a woman's life. Studies and research on the effects of diseases related to metabolism and female hormonal regulation are also included. The types of cancer that most often affect women are breast, colon, rectum, endometrial, lung, cervix, skin, and ovarian cancer. Four of these are of gynecological origin and can occur at different stages in women. Because many of these cancers are curable if detected and treated early, lines of research have been developed for the detection and treatment of these pathologies.
Gynecological and Obstetric Surgery. This line studies the treatment of different gynecological and obstetric pathologies under different surgical approaches to describe new techniques and compare results with traditional surgical techniques. In our specialty program, the resident is exposed in different hospital locations during his training to the acquisition of surgical skills in the different types of abdominal, vaginal, and minimally invasive approaches.
