Dear Colleagues,

I would like to emphasize a significant issue, the increase in the number of residents of obstetrics and gynecology. The number of residents of obstetrics and gynecology has been rapidly increased by the health authorities. With the civil society organizations, we were not involved in the determination of such an increase.

The rapid increase in the number of residents raises concerns regarding the quality and the standardization of resident education. With double the number of residents, the problem in both standardization and the quality of resident education emerge. We have to take into consideration that the education of residents is actually what creates the future of obstetrics and gynecology.

I believe that we, as the community of obstetrics and gynecology, could overcome this issue with collaboration and cooperation among all obstetricians and gynecologists.
