Welcome from our Program Director

Welcome to the HCA Healthcare Las Palmas Del Sol Obstetrics & Gynecology residency program. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) approved the Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program in February 2019.

Mission Statement

The Las Palmas Del Sol Medical Center Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

Program Overview

Thank you for your interest in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Training program at HCA Healthcare Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare.

Our four-year program has been ACGME-accredited since 2019 for up to six categorical positions each year. The goal of the program is to educate the next generation of obstetrician-gynecologists to become compassionate and competent individuals.

Our program provides both inpatient and outpatient experiences with diverse exposure to obstetrics and gynecology patients. We provide residents with an outstanding fund of knowledge, patient care, and clinical skills to serve their future communities.

In addition, we provide instrumental clinical and leadership residency training with an emphasis on extensive in-patient and progressive continuity clinics. Residents will build a dynamic knowledge base and enable them to practice quality healthcare.

The main teaching sites for the Obstetrics and Gynecology program are Las Palmas Medical Center and Del Sol Medical Center, both in sunny El Paso, Texas.

Both medical centers are structured on a solid foundation with excellent teaching physicians and advanced medical equipment making the sites an ideal educational training facility for resident medical education.

Residents can expect to acquire lifelong clinical experiences within a multicultural patient population. The clinical knowledge gained will sharpen the resident's clinical and leadership skills needed to provide quality patient care.
