Career Development Program

The Augusta University's Women's Reproductive Health Research, is an NIH sponsored career development program designed to develop a new generation of Obstetrician/Gynecologist physician-scientists who can independently support and sustain careers in multidisciplinary research related to women’s reproductive health. Augusta University is one of 15 WRHR sites across the country chosen to support NIH’s mission of creating a talented pool of physician-scientists with expertise in women’s reproductive health research.

Housed within MCG’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the WRHR Career Development Center’s primary function is to train OB/GYN-qualified physicians/scholars to become independent investigators who can translate the results of their research into improved reproductive health for women. Our goal is to provide individualized training tailored to the scholar - training that matches the strengths of our internationally recognized mentors with the career goals of each scholar.
