When a resident has interest in the women’s health track, they should meet with the program director within the first 6 months of their residency to help establish goals for their residency goals.  If the resident knows they have interest in women’s health before beginning their residency, it is recommended to express this as soon as the match is finished.  This way, the new resident can be matched with a women’s health care family physician advisor.  If a resident has future interest in a women’s health (or it’s subspecialties) fellowship program after residency, this too should be expressed as soon as possible.
