In this fourth-year elective, the student will participate in all of the activities of the Gynecology Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Emphasis will be placed on the pretreatment evaluation of patients, the available modalities of therapy (surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy), and the principles by which a choice of treatment is ultimately made.
The student will have the opportunity to participate in unit rounds and in some operations. They will also be able to attend the Gynecology Service’s conferences and lectures and other pertinent meetings in Memorial Hospital and the Sloan Kettering Institute. Those who are so inclined will have the opportunity to undertake a clinical research project.
