Background: A robust selection process is critical to residents' "cultural fit" and success in their program. Traditional selection methods have shortcomings. Objective: We describe a novel residency interview process for obstetrics-gynecology residents that incorporates behavioral, group, and surgical simulation multiple mini interviews (MMIs)....
Article
To determine if the DISC (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness/Submission, and Conscientious/ Compliance) assessment correlates with obstetrics and gynecology resident performance. A total of 46 residents completed the DISC assessment. Residents were classified as "administrators" based on service to the program or as "concerning" if they were on remed...
Article
To assess conflict styles and construct validity of the Thomas-Kilmann Mode of Conflict Instrument (TKI) among medical education personnel. From 2006 to 2009, 23 board-certified physicians (faculty), 46 residents, and 31 graduate medical education (GME) administrators participated in 3 behavior surveys. We used self-reported data (as completed by p...
Article
The purpose of this study was to develop a method to visualize 3-dimensional (3D) anatomic changes in the cervix and lower uterine segment during the antepartum period. An observational study of patients with both uncomplicated and complicated pregnancies was performed. To visualize 3D anatomic changes, solid models were constructed from 3D sonogra...

The prevalence of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is estimated to be nearly 10% among reproductive-age women. PCOS may represent the largest underappreciated segment of the female population at risk of cardiovascular disease. Clinicians providing care to women of childbearing age must recognize the presenting clues, including irregular menses, hir...

... An obstetrics and gynecology program has also designed a surgical simulation assessment as part of a found top-ranked and matched applicants scored better than other candidates with respect to the surgical simulation. 10 Otolaryngology training programs have also utilized surgical simulation during resident interviews to further assess skills and attitude of applicants, including microvascular repair activities and a soap-carving exercise. [11][12][13] The results of these studies vary. ...
... Programme coordinators are stable members of educational team who can observe residents during the entire training period in a non-hierarchical manner. Evidence suggests that coordinators' behaviour is more collaborative, less competing, and less aggressive than of faculty physicians [26]. Coordinators can play an 'ancillary' but indispensable roles [9] that assess and foster residents' PIF, help supervisors [2], and contribute to a better residency programme. ...
... Sin embargo, no se pueden descartar otros factores que pudieran también estar involucrados, como la presencia en algunas mujeres de SOPQ, en las que se ha demostrado mayor elevación de proteína C reactiva (PCR) como marcador de inflamación, y mayor prevalencia de eventos isquémicos, uso de terapia hormonal y DMG. Las consecuencias de la presencia de estos factores en el SM producen aterogénesis, disfunción diastólica de ventrículo izquierdo, disfunción microvascular, calcificación vascular, hipertrofia ventricular izquierda e insuficiencia cardiaca 129 . ...
... The three-dimensional (3D) anatomy of the cervix during pregnancy is poorly understood [35], and it is only in the last ten years that the structural changes that occur have been studied. The preferred methods of investigation include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) [36,37] and 3D ultrasonography [38,39], with reconstructions based on these anatomic data and others derived from the known physical properties of the subepithelial stromal components. Although there are some limitations with the methods, these are some of the first studies that have considered the three-dimensional cervical changes that occur during pregnancy. ...
