Abstract

In response to the new standards for resident work hours issued in 2003, Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, MA developed a program for midwifery involvement in resident and medical education. The Obstetrics Team consists of a midwife teaching first-year residents in obstetrics/gynecology and emergency medicine and third-year medical students on the labor and delivery unit. This program has successfully addressed the need for resident and medical education as well as service provision created by reduced resident work hours and provides a useful model for other institutions.
