List of NFP-Friendly OB/GYN Programs

    1. Dear Johnny,
      Thanks for reading! This is a list of programs that are open to training NFP only residents. This list was compiled based on individual statements to individual people, and does not reflect program policies or official stances. Like all residency programs, these programs will undergo changes in leadership and philosophy, so it's always a good idea to have a conversation with someone who's recently been on the interview trail.
