EXPERTS IN WOMEN'S HEALTH
The Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology (NDOG) encompasses multi-disciplinary research across the full spectrum of women’s health. Our work has four overarching themes; Cancer, Global Health, Maternal & Fetal Health and Reproductive Medicine & Genetics. We also teach students and provide clinical care for Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. This huge and varied breadth of work makes us one of the largest academic and clinical Obstetrics & Gynaecology departments in the UK. The Department also now includes The George Institute for Global Health (TGI) whose mission is to increase access to quality health care for millions of people worldwide - with a particular focus on vulnerable women in resource-poor settings.Find out more
