Fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology

The mission of the joint Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medicine and Columbia University Medical Center is to provide the framework, resources, and academic environment necessary 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).

NewYork-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 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 Weill Cornell for 6 months, at Columbia for 1 year, and then ending at Weill Cornell for 6 months. 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.
