Program Director Welcome


Peter Balazs, MD

OBGYN Residency Program Director

Congratulations!  You have finally reached the final and most important stage of your training, your OBGYN Residency. Finding the right program can be an exhausting task.  With so much information to process, you will be spending hours comparing programs, applying, going on interviews, touring hospitals and meeting faculty. I am happy you have chosen to visit our website and even happier you are reading yet another program director’s letter.

Here at St. Joseph’s we offer training with a difference. That difference is a friendly, supportive environment designed to make learning stimulating and fun. From day one of your residency you will become part of a team dedicated to giving our patients the best care available while providing you with the education necessary to become compassionate, well-rounded, board-certified OB Gynecologist. We aim towards the future;  giving you the tools to become leaders in our rapidly changing profession and health care system. With 12 residents and a faculty of 13 attendings, nurses and  Midwives, we are able to provide our residents with a hands on training to help each reach their full potential. Our faculty will mentor your professional growth while giving you the emotional support, advice and encouragement you need to cope with the demands of training. We take great pride in our graduates and they take great pride in their training. Never was “St. Joseph’s pride” more evident than during the corona virus pandemic when residents and faculty band together to face the unique challenges presented to us during the crisis. Residency should be the most exciting, intellectually stimulating and rewarding time of your life. Spend a few minutes exploring these pages to find out why St. Joseph’s may be the program for you. Learn about our world-class hospitals, educational curriculum, simulation center, rotations, and our location. We’re sure you’ll like what you see!
