Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (Scibetta Fellowship)
(in affiliation with AAGL)
About The Program
This is a two-year fellowship that incorporates clinical, research, and teaching responsibilities at the University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York. It is best suited for candidates who wish to pursue an academic career, and offers the time for research and academic development.
The goal of the program is to develop our Fellows into skilled laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgeons who can confidently tackle complicated pelvic surgeries including severe adhesive disease, advanced-stage endometriosis, complex myomectomies and congenital anomalies. Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery is an integral part of the experience. The program has a focus on chronic pelvic pain, allowing the development of an area of sub-specialty interest for the graduate of the program. The Fellow operates at least three days per week. The Fellow will also rotate with our GYN Oncology service, Urogynecology and Colorectal Service
The Fellow gains valuable office and teaching experience by seeing patients in the faculty practice and by supervising residents seeing patients in the URMC Fibroid Center (with supervision by Dr. Bhagavath) as well as Chronic Pelvic Pain Clinic (with supervision by Dr. Benjamin). The Fellow spends at least one day per week in the office, seeing patients.
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is a vibrant and congenial department that affords the Fellow a wide variety of academic, clinical, and social opportunities. It serves as a major tertiary center in Western New York for complex obstetric and gynecologic patients, providing a wealth of clinical experiences.
