Learn more about the faculty's clinical expertise and research
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center offers a four-year fellowship that prepares trainees for certification and an academic career in the subspecialty of gynecologic oncology.
Designed within a multidisciplinary setting, the fellowship program provides fellows with the most effective education and training to ensure the development of the skills necessary to practice gynecologic oncology. In addition to time spent on the Gynecology Service, rotations are available on the Urology, Colorectal, Gastric and Mixed Tumor, Radiation Therapy, and Chemotherapy Services.
Fellows are responsible for preoperative and postoperative patient care, and they will perform surgical operations under the attending surgeon's direction. Fellows will help supervise and instruct the residents on the Gynecology Service, as well as participate in outpatient clinics, rounds, lectures, and weekly treatment planning conferences.
The first year of the fellowship will be dedicated solely to basic science research. During the second year, the fellow will either continue basic science with inclusion of some clinical coverage of medical oncology clinics, or he/she will participate on the Medical Oncology Service. The third year is comprised of clinical rotations on the Gynecology Service for ten months with two months of elective time spent on the Breast Service and in Radiation Oncology. In the final year, the fellow will rotate for eight months on the Gynecology Service; the other four months will be spent rotating on the Colorectal Service (two months), Gastric and Mixed Tumor (one month), and elective time (final month).
