The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is committed to provide a comprehensive and excellent health care to women in all stages of life. It is an active partner of the Department of Health (DOH) in the different programs that focuses on women’s reproductive health. Among its major advocacies in the field of Obstetrics are:

  1. promotion of a healthy pregnancy and safe delivery,
  2. prevention and reduction of maternal morbidities and mortalities, and
  3. widespread dissemination of information on family planning.

The department also supports the DOH in its concerted efforts in the prevention of women’s diseases such as Sexually Transmitted Infections and gynecologic malignancies. The department receives referrals and competently manages high risk pregnancy cases and complicated gynecologic cases that come from all the six Bicol provinces.

The department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is the first medical department in BRTTH to attain full accreditation for residency training by its specialty society, the Philippine Obstetrical and Gynecological Society (POGS). It has graduated several resident physicians that are now atively practicing in Catanduanes, Sorsogon, Albay, and Camarines Sur. The department also conducts several training courses for municipal health doctors, nurses, and midwives as well as regular health education classes for its patients.
