Internationally recognized research programs
Our research programs in maternal fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology, gynecologic oncology, female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery are robust and continue to gain the department recognition at the national and international level.
Resource for high-risk mothers throughout Pennsylvania
Our Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine is a trusted resource for high risk mothers from all of central Pennsylvania, providing consultative and ultrasound services at four clinical sites in the surrounding areas, including Hershey, Camp Hill, Harrisburg, and Reading. We have a full range of prenatal diagnostic options including both first trimester and mid-trimester screening.
Fully accredited educational programs
Our educational programs continue to thrive with our fully accredited residency program, an ABOG accredited fellowship program in Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and an American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists accredited fellowship program in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery.
Innovative telesurgery program for educational outreach
To help foster high school students’ interest in healthcare careers, we developed a live telesurgery program. It’s one of only four programs in the country that provides this kind of partnership for education. Dr. Gerald Harkins, the division chief of the Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery division, and Dr. Holly Thomas, the division chief of Women’s Health, actively participate in the program.
