Mission Statement

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Arizona is committed to improving the health and well-being of all women through excellence in patient care, innovative research, and exceptional education of health care providers.  We are committed to cultivating a climate of mutual respect, dignity, and inclusion in which every patient, student, resident, fellow, staff and faculty member may feel a sense of value and belonging. We strongly believe that diversity enriches training, improves health outcomes and is cornerstone to reducing inequities in patient care.
