    Can we talk about specific programs? I don’t want anyone to get in trouble.

    Be discrete. (Names of residents at programs, whether conscience-conscious or not, are probably overboard). Remember that the internet is unforgiving and everything is permanent.

    But because things are as anonymous as you like, you can ask particular questions about particular programs by name. Just remember that everyone answering is providing their own experiences and opinions. They may differ from the programs’ views, especially if those experiences were several years ago.

    This is a list I stole from medicalmatins.com, a great blog for those wanting to practice in a Catholic manner. Here are residencies that are listed as being OK with NFP-only OBGYN residents:

    In no particular order:
    • MedStar/Washington Hospital Center (Washington, D.C.; has absorbed previously recommended Georgetown)
    • Exempla St. Joseph (Denver, Colorado)
    • Phoenix Integrated Residency (Phoenix, Arizona)
    • St. Louis University (St. Louis, Missouri)
    • Mercy Hospital (St. Louis, Missouri)
    • Presence St. Joseph (Chicago, Illinois)
    • Presence St. Francis (Evanton, Illinois)
    • University of Illinois College of Medicine (Peoria, Illinois)
    • Grand Rapids Medical Education Partners (Grand Rapids, Michigan)
    • St. Joseph’s Mercy (Ann Arbor, Michigan)
    • Loma Linda University (Loma Linda, California)
    • Baylor University Medical Center (Dallas, Texas)
    • Methodist (Dallas, Texas)
    • Methodist (Houston, Texas; has absorbed previously recommended St. Joseph’s)
    • Baylor College of Medicine (Houston, Texas)
    • Memorial Hermann (Houston, Texas)
    • Texas A&M University/Scott and White (Temple, Texas)
    • University of Texas Southwestern (Austin, Texas)
    • SUNY, Sisters of Charity (Buffalo, New York)
    • Florida State University (Pensacola, Florida)
    • Louisiana State University (Baton Rouge, Louisiana)
    • St. Francis Care (Hartford, Connecticut)
    • Creighton University School of Medicine (Omaha, Nebraska)
    • Tulane School of Medicine (New Orleans, Louisiana)
    • Wright State College of Medicine (Dayton, Ohio)
    • University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, Minnesota)
    • University of Utah (Salt Lake City, Utah)
    • University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, Ohio)

    I would also like to add these based on conversations in 2016-2017:
    • University of Illinois College of Medicine (Peoria, Illinois)
    • Mountain Area Health Education Center, Asheville, NC
    • Summa Health- Akron City Hospital, Ohio
    • Lehigh Valley Health Network (Allentown, PA)
    • St Lukes ( Bethlehem, PA)
    And to highlight 3 in particular, Sisters of Charity in Buffalo, Mercy in St Louis, and St Louis University all come up as the programs most open to NFP-only residents.

    That’s a very comprehensive list. I will share my thoughts about MedStar and Memorial Hermann: I’m not sure they would enjoy a resident who didn’t want to prescribe. They’re big and busy programs, spreading a relatively small number of residents over a lot of patient care, and I’m not sure (and I don’t think they were sure) whether they could make accommodations.

    I post this not in a derogatory way, but just to be honest.
