Danbury Hospital Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Faculty

Erin Panarelli,MD,
Program Director

Welcome Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in our residency program. Our goal is to develop compassionate obstetricians and gynecologists with the competency to practice general obstetrics and gynecology or to move into further sub-specialty training and research.

Our program offers four areas of strength: broad clinical exposure, conscientious faculty supervision, progressive levels of responsibility and special projects in critical thinking.

These strengths combine to make our OBGYN Residency Program a richly rewarding experience to anyone interested in the practice of medicine treating women of all ages.

Our curriculum provides the essential elements of experiential learning in a state-of-the-art hospital with cutting-edge technology, while incorporating team-based learning and clinical simulations.  Residents will be integrated into a robust culture of patient safety and engage in an interdisciplinary approach to patient care, while being focused on maximizing learning, team-work and innovation.  Our residents will be partners in these endeavors.

Our mission is to provide an innovative, nurturing and personalized education program that fosters development as competent generalist Obstetrician Gynecologist or preparation for fellowship training.  We strive to create physician leaders that can work collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams and advocate for women’s health; promote humble, compassionate and empathetic physicians to provide patient-centered care for a diverse patient population; and foster a working environment which emphasizes the mindfulness of work-life balance.

On behalf of our faculty, I welcome you to discover what Danbury Hospital OBGYN Residency Program offers and invite you to be part of our Graduate Medical Education Program.

I look forward to meeting you,
