Subspecialty Training in Gynecologic Oncology
This is a two-year integrated training program in patient-centered clinical care and research in the field of prevention and treatment of gynecological cancers.
Under the direct supervision of the faculty, trainees will be responsible for the care of patients referred to the service and will have ample opportunity to achieve clinical competence in all aspects of the diagnosis and management of pre-invasive and invasive gynecological malignancies. Trainees will receive training in the preoperative assessment of high-risk patients and in the post-operative care of these patients. They will be trained in the full range of surgical procedures for the treatment of pre-invasive and invasive gynecological cancers, including laser surgery of the lower genital tract, radical oncological surgery using laparotomy, laparoscopy and robotics.
Research is an integral part of the fellowship. Trainees are expected to present their work at a National or International Scientific Meeting and publish their work in a peer-reviewed journal. Throughout the program, trainees are expected to participate in the teaching of medical students, residents, general gynecologists and other health care professionals.
