Dr. Megan Schimpf completed her undergraduate and medical education at the University of Michigan before going to the University of Connecticut for residency training.

Dr. Schimpf has been board certified in obstetrics and gynecology since 2006. She came back to the University of Michigan to join the faculty in early 2012, and is very happy to be back in the great city of Ann Arbor again. Her clinical interests include surgical outcomes, impact of obstetrics on the pelvic floor, vaginal and robotic surgery for prolapse along with urinary incontinence treatments.
