Research and Education

The Department maintains an active program of research that includes clinical, translational and basic science investigation relevant to women's health. Our research is supported by extramural and intramural funding and derived from a combination of federal, private and institutional sources. Research programs in the areas of gynecologic oncology, reproductive endocrinology, high-risk obstetrics and more allow our patients to receive the newest innovations in health care without having to travel to Boston or New York City. All of these programs allow our students, residents and fellows to receive the high quality, innovative medical education required to serve the women of this region, and the country in the future.

Clinical Excellence

We provide specialty and subspecialty care for the women of Vermont and northern New York. Our cutting-edge clinical programs include the Women's Center for Pelvic Health (a multidisciplinary center for the treatment of incontinence and pelvic relaxation in women), the Fetal Diagnostic Center (a state-of-the-art ultrasound and genetic diagnosis center) and the In Vitro Fertilization program.
