Dr. Genevieve Rousseau


Dr Genevieve Rousseau is an Obstetrician/Gynecologist at the Ottawa Hospital-General campus. She is an Assistant Professor at the University of Ottawa and a Simulation Instructor at the uOSSC (University of Ottawa Skills and Simulation Center).

Dr. Rousseau completed her Medical Degree in 1990 and her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Ottawa in 1995. She furthered her studies in ultrasound in Strasbourg (France) and Malmo (Sweden). She completed her Simulation Instructor course at the Harvard School of Medicine in 2013 and is the lead instructor of the Obstetrics Postgraduate Program.  She has developed an interest in “Patient Safety through Simulation training” and is actively involved in resident’s teaching thru simulation.

Dr Rousseau’s practice is mainly community based and includes prenatal care, general gynecology and ultrasound.  She has joined the team of obstetricians/gynecologist reading ultrasounds at the “Women’s Ultrasound Clinic”.  She is part of the Obstetrics call group of the Ottawa Hospital-General Campus.

Patient Care Philosophy

Dr Rousseau's practice is community based at OriGyns Medical Clinic, a new facility which opened in 2016.  Conveniently located beside Women's Ultrasound Clinic, it permits an integrated, "one stop shop" approach where patients can undergo their ultrasound examination and be seen immediately after for result discussion.  Our practice is multidisciplinary with medical assistants and obstetrical nurses promoting a comprehensive/global approach to patient's needs. My areas of interest include Obstetrics, General Gynecology and Education.
