The MedStar Washington Hospital Center / Georgetown University Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship is a comprehensive training program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program is sponsored by the department of Ob/Gyn at both MedStar Washington Hospital Center and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Fellows benefit from a wide range of clinical cases. Medstar Washington Hospital Center logs almost 2,000 new patient visits and performs greater than 600 major procedures per year. With a full complement of urologic, radiologic and neurodiagnostic testing available, our program is known for its use of state-of-the-art medical technology. Fellows are trained in minimally invasive techniques, including vaginal surgery as well as conventional laparoscopy and robotic-assisted laparoscopy (utilizing the da Vinci ® Si and Xi™ Surgical systems).

The curriculum is designed to provide a comprehensive and multidisciplinary understanding of pelvic floor disorders. The clinical curriculum includes experience in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, minimally invasive and robotic surgery, colon and rectal surgery, and urology.  Fellows assume progressively independent clinical responsibilities under the guidance of a multidisciplinary team of experts, including fellowship trained urogynecologists, female urologists, minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons, colon and rectal surgeons, urologists and a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist.

For graduates of a urology residency programs, the fellowship spans three years. We have a track record of training fellows from urology background and we have directly integrated female urology into the fellowship program. Fellows are actively engaged in research projects and resources at Georgetown University School of Medicine. Fellows have the opportunity to apply for the Master of Science in Clinical and Translational Research Program through Georgetown University School of Medicine and GHUCCTS. If desired, this can be completed, which would add an additional year to the length of the fellowship.
