Curriculum and Training

The three-year fellowship is comprised of one dedicated research year followed by two years of clinical training. Although the first year of fellowship is dedicated to research, continued involvement in research is encouraged throughout the fellowship. 

Our clinical curriculum is focused on comprehensive care of women with gynecologic malignancies. During the second two years, our fellows will be mentored by experts in gynecologic oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, urology, chemotherapy, ICU medicine, pathology, genetic counseling, and palliative care. Our goal is for fellows to experience graduated responsibility towards independence in the complex surgical and medical management required to care for our unique patient population.

Rotations

The training program is three years or 36 months. There are 3 fellows annually, one on research rotation and the other two on clinical rotations. The fellow will engage in 24 months of clinical rotations which will meet the minimum 24 months requirement by the ACGME and 12 months of basic science research.

Training Case Requirements

Minimum numbers of cases are required for graduation. A detailed case log must be maintained on the ACGME site by each resident physician, and will be reviewed with the Program Director in the bi-annual meeting.

Moonlighting

Moonlighting is allowed but must be approved and monitored by the program director. Malpractice insurance for moonlighting is the fellow’s responsibility.
