Our ACGME-approved fellowship program in gynecologic oncology is a three-year fellowship. One three-year fellow will be accepted into the program each year.
The fellowship is conducted under the auspices of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology. The fellowship program director is Edward R. Kost, M.D., Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The goal of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology is to train physicians who are capable of functioning as independent gynecologic oncologists. That is why all aspects of patient management are equally emphasized.
To achieve this goal, fellows are given progressive clinical responsibilities during the two years of clinical training. Since it is recognized that different fellows may possess different backgrounds, knowledge, skill and learning ability, this progression in responsibility cannot be set by a fixed schedule. It can only be accomplished by ongoing evaluations on an individual basis.
Through daily contact, close interactions and direct supervision by faculty members, each fellow is evaluated for his or her initiative, knowledge, competency and skills in the operating room, at the bedside and in the ambulatory care clinics.
These evaluations are performed on at least a quarterly basis. Appropriate responsibilities are then given the fellow and increased in proportion to the individual fellow’s progress.
The amount of clinical material and total commitment of faculty members assure the maturity of our fellows in their clinical years.
