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.

Covid-19 vaccination in pregnant and lactating women

What if I am pregnant or breastfeeding: Is it still safe to get the vaccine?

Pregnant patients are more likely to have serious illness from COVID-19 and are at risk of developing pregnancy complications as a result. The vaccine is very effective in reducing the risk of infection. While pregnant and breastfeeding individuals were not included in COVID-19 vaccine studies, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding be offered the vaccine to prevent serious illness. While there is still not enough information to specifically recommend the vaccine during pregnancy or breastfeeding, as of now, thousands of pregnant individuals have received the vaccine without known issue. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should discuss the vaccine with your doctor so you can make the decision that is right for you.
