SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello, I am currently a PGY-2 in an OB/GYN residency and I can personally attest to the fact that out of every other residency program at the University of Chicago, the OB one is by far, the most malignant. Yes, we have a night float system, but six nights a week, doesnt make anyone happy. Most of the other residencies here have lots of ancillary staff to make the workload alot easier, but not the OB department. I thought initially that our program was taking a move away from the malignant reputation it had, but some new attendings have re-established malignant conferences. Attendings dont get involved with teaching here, they say there is protected time for didactics, not true. Everyone do yourself a favor and unless you really absolutely, positively have to live in Chicago, dont even apply here. They will lie and say they arent malignant, but believe me, they are.
