Gynecologic Oncology Overview

Our faculty members are dedicated to mentoring and teaching medical students, residents, and fellows; providing superior, compassionate patient care; and conducting unique research that advances the treatment of gynecologic cancers.

As part of UT Southwestern Medical School’s third-year gynecology clerkship, we provide core lectures to medical students. We also host fourth-year students from medical schools nationwide who come here to experience our practice. This extern program is a way to give medical students a taste of gynecologic oncology as they are examining residency training options.

During their second and third years of training, residents in obstetrics and gynecology from Parkland Health & Hospital System join us on the Gynecologic Oncology Hospital Service and in the Outpatient Clinic to learn how to care for patients with gynecologic malignancies.

Our Division’s strengths in patient care stem from our collaborative approach to health care and from our committed search for effective treatment options for our patients.

Research is a key component of the Division’s academic mission and includes basic as well as clinical studies.
