GHP Graduate

Obstetrics and Gynecology

Duke University, Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology


Dr. Erin Dainty is a 2012 graduate of the Global Health Obstetrics and Gynecology Fellowship at Duke University. As a Global Health Fellow she completed a Master of Science in Global Health. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology and Chemistry from Davidson College and her MD from the University of Virginia. She completed residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Pennsylvania. As a part of her fellowship affiliation with Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, she participated in several research projects in Eldoret, Kenya, along with full time clinical practice in reproductive health.  Her primary research project, investigating cervical cancer screening in HIV positive Kenyan women, was funded both through her Fogarty International Clinical Research Fellowship and the Center for AIDS Research at Duke University.



Dr. Dainty feels that the clinical practice of obstetrics and gynecology is integral to the care of women and girls internationally. The Global Health Fellowship at Duke allowed her the rich opportunity to engage in relevant international research, as well as clinical care in resource poor settings. Post-fellowhip, Dr. Dainty has relocated to San Francisco, where she is an assistant professor in Obstetrics and Gynecology at UCSF.  She is engaged in full time clinical academic practice with a particular focus on inpatient high risk obstetrics.
