The Memorial Sloan Kettering Gynecology Service offers a two-year international gynecologic oncology fellowship to fully trained gynecologists from outside the United States who desire further training in gynecologic oncology.
The program is designed to afford the trainee a solid experience in gynecologic oncology surgery and patient management. The fellow is responsible for preoperative and postoperative patient care and will perform surgical procedures under the direction of an attending surgeon. Fellows will participate in resident instruction as well as in the outpatient clinics, rounds, lectures, and treatment planning conferences.
The two-year fellowship is composed primarily of patient care on the gynecologic oncology service. Other rotations in which the fellow acts as the primary assistant to the attending include: colorectal, general surgical oncology, urology, and radiation oncology. The fellow will have three weeks of vacation per year.
