Overview & Mission

gyn onc Division Picture 3

The mission of the Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center (NYP/CUMC) and the Weill Cornell Medical Center is to provide the framework, resources and academic environment for a foundation of basic science and clinical knowledge, which will support successful academicians in gynecologic oncology. Our three-year program follows all required guidelines and is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG).

NYP is the hospital structure for the Columbia University and Weill Cornell Medical Centers. Our gynecologic oncology fellowship represents a joint program between the two academic medical centers at this teaching hospital. Fellows enrolled in our three-year program will complete one year of research at one of the campuses, and two years of clinical/surgical experience, rotating every six months between the two campuses.

The joint program developed by the two academic institutions embodies the shared determination to pioneer innovative new treatment modalities and positions NYP to set a new standard of excellence in healthcare. The partnership between the two prominent Ivy League medical schools — Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and Weill Medical College of Cornell — strengthens NYP’s academic and clinical leadership across a broad range of illnesses and diseases. U.S. News & World Report has consistently recognized NYP as one of “America’s Best Hospitals” and has consistently awarded NYP the highest ranking in New York City. Rankings are based on reputation, outcomes, and other factors, including nursing quality. In addition, Columbia’s Cancer Center has been designated a National Cancer Institute (NCI) Comprehensive Cancer Center since 1979.
