By NICHOLAS JOHNSON The gynecology residency program at New York University Medical Center has officially returned to its former glory.
Dr. R. Michael Tabor is returning to the faculty after more than two decades, after more and more gynecological residents started to show up.
He said the number of residents has been steadily growing over the past three years.
“This has been an incredible journey, especially as we’ve moved into the era of online training, and a lot of these folks who had been in gynecologies were able to find other careers,” said Tabor.
The residency program is still open, but Tabor said he plans to hire more people in the next year or so.
“We have a number of new residents who have been doing their residency work in New York City, so we’ll be in touch with them,” said Dr. Tabor, who retired from the program in 2018.
The medical school has had its own resurgence in recent years, with students returning from the U.S. and abroad.
Dr.-elect Dr. William Ritter is back, as are three other medical school graduates who had spent time at the medical school, including Dr. Peter D. Hsieh.
They will begin classes at NYU’s School of Medicine in October.
“As we continue to attract more and better students, we will continue to invest in our residency programs, and we are thrilled to have our new graduates join our faculty and students in NYC,” said Dean for Academic Affairs, Andrew B. Biesecker, in a statement.NYU Medical School, which is also home to two other medical schools, including NYU Langone Medical Center, is expanding its gynecologic residency program.
It is part of the NYU Medical School’s New York-based Department of Medicine.
More than 3,000 people applied to the program, which was launched in 2015, according to the university.
New York is one of the nation’s top medical schools in terms of medical schools per capita.
The NYU-New York Gynecology Program was established in 2004, and its program has seen more than 1,500 residencies.
It’s the third largest residency program in the world.
In 2018, New York announced it would open a residency program for women.
That program, known as the NYU New York Family Practice Program, was announced in May 2019.
