Fellows are required to take a graduate level biostatistics course. Funding and biostatistician support are available through GME. Fellows attend American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS), Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine & Urogenital Reconstruction (SUFU) & Society of Gynecologic Surgeons (SGS) conferences.
