ObGyn Gynecology without obstetrics?

If a female doctor wants to get into ob/gyn residencies but wants to avoid operation rooms and labors, just gynecological diseases, infertility cases and so.
Is there residencies for that?

There's no Gynecology-Only residency, but after finishing ObGyn residency you can limit the scope of your practice to gynecology-only practice, see this page

Alternatively, you can do fellowship (after you finish residency)

The fellowships in obgyn are the following:
  • Maternal-Fetal Medicine
  • Reproductive Endocrinology (includes fertility medicine)
  • Gynecologic Oncology
