Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery

The Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship is a three-year program accredited by the American Board of Ob/Gyn and the American Board of Urology. We accept one fellow every other year.  We currently have a fellow starting in 2015. We will recruit in 2016 for start date of July 2017. The program is designed to provide the graduate a balanced experience in clinical urogynecology, medical education, and clinical and basic science research.  The goal of the fellowship program is to provide a comprehensive three-year educational experience to prepare fellows for a career in academic medicine. Fellows participate in 2 years of clinical training including time with instructors form the divisions of Urogynecology, Female Urology, Gynecologic Oncology, Geriatrics, Colorectal surgery, Gynecologic Specialties (, pelvic pain and vulvar disorders), and Physical Therapy. The equivalent of one year is spent pursuing research activities and preparing a thesis for defense.  These educational activities are regularly reviewed for their educational value. Fellows participate in formulating changes within the program to enhance its educational value.  The fellowship programs adheres to guidelines and objectives outlined by ABOG/AUA as well as the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
