According to US News & World Report, the top 10 medical school programs for students who are studying to become obstetrician/gynecologists are:
- Harvard University
- University of California - San Francisco
- Johns Hopkins University
- University of Michigan - Ann Arbor
- University of Pennsylvania (Perelman)
- University of Pittsburgh
- Washington University in St. Louis
- Northwestern University (Feinberg)
- Duke University
- Columbia University
However, it is important to know that you can pursue and attain a very successful career as an OB/GYN by attending an US medical school that is not on this list. Becker's Hospital Review identified OB/GYN as one of the most in demand fields of medicine. It is also among the best compensated. This means that you can help patients and earn a great living in a stable career even if you do not attend one of the very selective schools listed above.
Note: the best preparation for attending these medical schools is to pursue a rigorous, science-related major such as biochemistry, biology, or chemistry while completing your undergraduate studies.
