Welcome

The New Jersey Obstetrical & Gynecological Society is an elite group of dedicated obstetricians and gynecologists who practice in the State of New Jersey. Since 1947, NJOGS has been the cohesive force that unites us. With almost 400 members, and growing strong, we are a force to be reckoned with. You know that you can’t “fight the system” alone. We know this, too.

We are united by our commitment to improve the care that we give to our patients. The Society unites all obstetrician-gynecologists, and provides a single voice to sustain our survival as a specialty. Though you might not be aware of it, this Society has been active in Trenton and in Washington. We were there to fight for the subsidy payments that rebated a small portion of the exorbitant medical malpractice premiums that OBGYNs have been saddled with. We worked with Horizon to change the criteria for endometrial ablation. We have forged partnerships with our colleagues in women’s healthcare. We are proud of our ongoing relationship with AWHONN (Association of Women’s Healthcare, Obstetrical, and Neonatal Nurses). We work together, why can we not fight for change together, too?

The Society also provides educational opportunities for its membership. Every year, NJOGS offers two educational conferences, local to New Jersey, and covering issues that are uniquely local. You need to obtain CME credit to stay in practice here in New Jersey. Yes, we can help you there, too.
