3-Year Gynecology Fellowship

The Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery Fellowship at Wake Forest is ACGME compliant and accredited. The program is truly one of the few training programs in the USA where reconstructive urology and gynecology is completely integrated into one division that spans two departments. Fellows in our program become proficient in all modes of surgery including open, robotic, and transvaginal approaches. There are clinical rotations in FPHRS, Urology, Colorectal/Gastroenterology, and Geriatrics which all serve a large and diverse patient population.

In addition to our unique and robust clinical training program, Wake Forest offers a once-in-a-lifetime research opportunity through our world renowned Regenerative Medicine Institute. Led by the Chair of Urology, Dr. Anthony Atala, the institute provides an exceptional opportunity for fellows to participate in cutting edge translational research, including the development of an autologous neovagina, novel treatments for interstitial cystitis, and stem cell therapies for stress incontinence.
