Fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology

The mission of the joint Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program at NewYork-Presbyterian /Weill Cornell Medical Center and the Columbia University Medical Center is to provide the framework, resources and academic environment necessary in order to establish a foundation of basic science and clinical knowledge. This helps support successful research in Gynecologic Oncology. Our three-year program is certified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

New York-Presbyterian serves as the base for Columbia University and Weill Cornell Medical Centers, and our Gynecologic Oncology fellowship represents a joint program between these two teaching hospitals. Our three-year program consists of fellows doing one year of research at one of the campuses, and two years of clinical experience, with one year at each campus. Clinical years include rotating at WCM (6 months), then Columbia (1 year) ending back at WCM (6 months) campus. Research opportunities include basic science, translational, population-based clinical research and health equity research. The combined program of the two academic medical centers and the shared determination to pioneer innovative new treatment modalities sets a new standard of excellence in healthcare.

Fellowship in Maternal-Fetal Medicine

The Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) Fellowship Program at NewYork-Presbyterian /Weill Cornell Medicine is a three-year fellowship approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) to train MFM subspecialists to care for and/or provide consultation for women with complications of pregnancy. Fellows will gain advanced knowledge of the obstetrical, medical and surgical complications of pregnancy and their effect on both the mother and child. Training will result in the required expertise for the most current approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of women with complicated pregnancies.

Our program provides fellows with extraordinary academic support in developing both clinical excellence and research interests in all areas of MFM. With exposure to an unusually diverse patient population throughout New York City, fellows have a unique opportunity to study a broad range of clinical issues, often in collaboration with other departments. An active and renowned obstetrical ultrasound unit offers fellows the opportunity to train in all phases of non-invasive and invasive fetal sonography, while the antepartum testing unit offers the opportunity to develop skills in fetal assessment and provides a wealth of research opportunity. 

Application Procedure:

New York State Medical License and Board eligibility for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) are required for our Fellowship candidates. The deadline for MFM Fellowship applications is May 1.

Fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery

The primary goal of the Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS) fellowship is to provide fellows with advanced training in the surgical and medical care of patients with pelvic floor disorders. Also to provide an in-depth experience in clinical, translational, and basic science research sufficient to allow the pursuit of an academic career within Urogynecology/Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery (Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery). 

Our program benefits from collaborative, collegial relationships between the Departments of Urology, OB-GYN, Colorectal Surgery, Rehabilitation Medicine, Colorectal Surgery, and Gastroenterology. This training includes a large surgical volume and a diverse range of clinical experiences; including extensive training in vaginal surgery and both laparoscopic and robotic-assisted laparoscopic approaches. Fellows' broad-based exposure to clinical Urogynecology/Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery is marked by progressive responsibility both in the clinic and hospital settings. The fellows work with six Board-certified FPMRS specialists with different areas of expertise, colorectal surgeons and GI specialists recognized for their work in anal incontinence and defecatory dysfunction, and a pelvic rehabilitation/ pelvic pain specialist.
