The FPMRS fellowship at Cooper University Hospital consists of three years of diverse training with access to dynamic clinical experiences and innovative research in an academic environment. Being situated next to a major metropolitan area Cooper medical center provides a variety of clinical volume. Our program has an active didactics schedule with special focus not only on research and clinical expertise but also on the business of medicine.

First and second year rotations include FPMRS, urology, colorectal and two weeks of plastic surgery. The third year consists of a more focused experience on these services with the opportunity for external electives. Fellows participate in weekly continuity clinic sessions where they follow their own patients throughout 3 years of training. The continuity clinic allows the fellows to gradually build their independent management skills while also serving as educators for residents and medical students.

FPMRS faculty and fellows work in very collegial atmosphere. There is a high faculty-to-fellow ratio with 3 core and 6 non-core employed faculty involved in the education of 3 FPMRS fellows. The program offers access to faculty with expertise in a variety of specialties as they pertain to the field of FPMRS including: vaginal reconstructive surgery, abdominal and endoscopic reconstructive surgery, genitourinary and rectovaginal fistula repair, treatment of voiding and defecatory dysfunction and evaluation and management of pelvic pain. Additionally, our program offers international health care experience through regularly held medical missions to Ghana.

Requirements:  Program Eligibility for the FPMRS Fellowship requires completion of an Obstetrics and Gynecology or Urology residency approved by the ACGME.

Application Process: The Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship Program at Cooper University Hospital/Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, participates in the Electronic Residency Application.
