Gynecologic Oncology

Welcome to the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital fellowship in gynecologic oncology, a comprehensive fellowship program in which trainees will be exposed to the breadth and depth of the field. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is the hospital system for Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and Weill Cornell Medical School, and the fellowship in gynecologic oncology is a joint endeavor between the two schools.

 

The fellowship program in gynecologic oncology is a fast-paced program that exposes fellows to all aspects of gynecologic oncology. The program is three years in duration and consists of a research year followed by two clinical years. During the research year, fellows have a breadth of opportunities that can be focused to individual interests, including molecular oncology, tumor immunology, genetics, epidemiology, and outcomes research, among other options. During the clinical years, fellows spend time at both Weill Cornell Medical Center and Columbia University Medical Center. During the clinical years, fellows will gain experience with open, laparoscopic, and robotic-assisted surgery, as well as in-depth training in genitourinary and gastrointestinal tract surgery. Gynecologic oncology fellows manage the entire spectrum of care for our cancer patients, including surgery, chemotherapy, complications of therapy, and survivorship.

 

Our fellowship benefits from all the resources of two cancer centers and a wide range of resources. Finally, we are located in one of the largest, most diverse cities in the world that offers fellows in training a wide range of cultural activities and experiences. Upon completion of fellowship, our graduates have superb clinical and research skills and are prepared for a variety of career options. I hope you will explore our online information and contact me with any questions.

 

Warm regards,
