About Us

Dr. Ira BernsteinMessage from the Chair

Our education programs include clinical clerkships for 3rd and 4th year medical students in various areas of women's health, a 4-year residency program in Obstetrics & Gynecology, and subspecialty fellowship training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and in Maternal-Fetal Medicine; as well as a NIH funded Women’s Reproductive Health Research (K12) training program for junior faculty. As health-care professionals and educators, we strive to foster a supportive environment where our students, residents and fellows can obtain clinical and scientific knowledge, and learn state-of-the-art techniques for the practice of obstetrics and gynecology. Such an environment will provide our trainees with the clinical education necessary to make them highly skilled and compassionate medical professionals with a commitment to the health care of women.

As health-care professionals and educators, we strive to create an academic environment where our faculty can undertake meaningful clinical and basic research that will have a positive impact on both biomedical science and health care in the field of Women's Health.

Our Department is composed of 28 Board certified academic physicians and four Ph.D. faculty members. Our academic physicians have subspecialty interest in General Obstetrics & Gynecology, Gynecologic Oncology, Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and Urogynecology. Our mid-level providers include 6 Certified Nurse Midwives who offer midwifery care for uncomplicated pregnant women, 3 Nurse Practitioners and one Physician Assistant, who offer routine gynecologic care in an outpatient setting. In addition, 22 community based private practice physicians in the Burlington area, most having part-time clinical faculty appointments in the Department, actively participate in our clinical teaching programs. As health-care professionals and educators, we strive to provide compassionate and holistic care for our patients coupled with the ability to offer the latest in clinical and technological advancements in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
