3-Year Fellowship for Urology or OB/GYN

The fellowship program is accredited by the ACGME. This is a three-year multidisciplinary fellowship with a broad experience in management of female urinary and fecal incontinence, bladder pain disorders, pelvic organ prolapse, defecatory dysfunction and voiding dysfunction. Each fellow will take courses in Biostatistics and Epidemiology. Regularly scheduled didactic sessions are lead by the faculty covering all topics in female pelvic floor dysfunction. Time will be protected for completion of research projects and support provided from our Department as well as the Clinical Research Center.

Strengths of our program include a strong track record of fellow research productivity and a dynamic faculty in FPMRS, Colon and Rectal Surgery and Urology. We hold regular multidisciplinary conferences. Our broad-based clinical experience includes a large volume of minimally invasive and vaginal surgery. Graduates from our program will be comfortable offering the full spectrum of clinical options to patients. They will be capable of serving as consultants at a tertiary care medical center.

FPMRS fellows have no obstetric obligations.
