2-Year Fellowship for ABU Board Certified or Eligible Urologists
3-Year Fellowship for ABOG Board Certified or Eligible Gynecologists

At UCLA we have a fully integrated Urology and Gynecology FPMRS Fellowship. Fellows from both Urology and Gynecology train side-by-side in the same program. We believe this provides the most balanced, multi-disciplinary training in all areas of FPMRS. Our goals are to prepare our fellows for a bust clinical practice as well as train the future thought leaders in FPMRS in both Urology and Gynecology. At the completion of the program which includes clinical, research and other scholarly activity time, all fellows will have fulfilled the requirements for board certification in FPMRS by ABU or ABOG.

Our clinical program includes evaluation and treatment of all FPMRS conditions in a high volume health care system with emphasis on individualized treatments for our patients. Female pelvic reconstructive surgery includes experience in vaginal, laparoscopic, robotic, and open approaches to common conditions such as vaginal prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, fistula repair, urethral reconstruction and complex lower urinary tract reconstruction and urinary diversion. There is also an emphasis on lower urinary tract dysfunction, both non-neurogenic and neurogenic, and complex urodynamic and videourodynamic testing. The program also features experience with our GI, colorectal, radiology, and physical therapy colleagues.
