2017 NEAGO Meeting

Our residency program had a great showing for the 2017 New England Association of Gynecologic Oncologists Meeting in June 2017.  Dr. Roni Nitecki (Class of 2019) also won the Trainee Award for Best Resident Presentation for her abstract 'Utilization of Palliative Care Referrals in Ovarian Cancer Patients'.

Dr. Sarah Lassey (Class of 2017) Shared the Rewards and Challenges of Being Chief

When Sarah Lassey, MD, was a junior resident in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, she looked at the program’s chief residents with “so much respect and awe of their knowledge base and how they managed their teams.”

Now, Lassey supports and guides junior residents as one of 10 chief residents in the BWH/MGH Integrated Residency Program in Obstetrics and Gynecology, a four-year program.

“Being a chief resident is the experience of learning what it’s like to be a young faculty member,” said Lassey. “There’s a lot of leadership responsibility, including figuring out how to manage teams. It’s the first time people are looking to you for all decision-making. It’s a wonderful culmination of learning from the prior three years of residency.”

Depending on the specialty, chief residency either occurs in the final year of one’s residency or as an additional year after residency. In some specialties, all residents in their final year become chiefs; in others, a select number of chiefs are chosen (continue)

Baker-Channing Society

Our Baker-Channing Society was established in October 1958 and named for Dr. Walter Channing (first Chief of Obstetrics of the Boston Lying-In Hospital) and Dr. William Henry Baker (opened the Free Hospital for Women in November 1875). The Society consists of all the graduates from the BWH/MGH residency training program. We will be highlighting accomplishments of various alumni on our site. You can read the first profile of Dr. Jeffrey Ecker (class of 1992) on our Alumni page.
