The resident clinic at HCH serves a population of low-income and new immigrant women with backgrounds ranging from the DC area to all over the world! The clinic is where you see a lot of bread and butter OBGYN.

When clinic patients deliver or require surgery they remain resident patients and the senior resident will often be the primary surgeon during the case. The clinic is overseen by the chief residetn who acts as an attending provider and does all fo the pre-operative surgical evaluation and scheduling. A teaching attending is always present for complicated patients and oversight. Each resident spends at least 2 months dedicated to the resident clinic so they are able to form great relationships with the patients, staff and attendings.
