Ob/Gyn Fellowship Programs
With programs in all the subspecialties of obstetrics and gynecology, UT Southwestern’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology trains fellows to be future academic leaders. We offer American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG)-approved fellowships in Gynecologic Oncology, Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility; as well as an ACGME-accredited fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. Our fellows receive extensive training in patient care, as well as basic and clinical research, and also have the opportunity to teach residents and medical students.
General Information for Clinical Fellows
Each subspecialty has its own application deadlines and requirements. Please refer to the application information outlined on the individual web page describing your subspecialty of interest.
All fellows are required to take two graduate-level courses, including a biostatistics course. More information on specific course information can be obtained from each subspecialty division.
Fellows have the opportunity to attend many conferences within their own subspecialty. Please refer to the web page for your subspecialty of interest for detailed information.
License, Compensation, and Benefits
Texas Medical License
Application for a Texas medical license should be instituted immediately after being accepted into an ABOG program. The licensing process in Texas is cumbersome and time consuming. If not begun well in advance, obtaining a license prior to starting fellowship training will be difficult. The Texas Medical Board (TMB) accepts applications online.
Personal Time Off
At the discretion of the fellowship program director, fellows may take up to two weeks of personal time off each fellowship year. Personal time off may be used for personal business, leisure, or for health reasons.
Fellowship program directors may also grant fellows additional time off for special circumstances such as job interviews or unexpected health problems. This time is granted on a case-by-case basis, and the final decision rests with the program director. Please note: Any time off in excess of ABOG or ACGME guidelines will result in extension of the fellowship training period.
All personal time off must be approved by the program director, and coverage by other clinical fellows must be obtained.
Fellows are urged to contact their fellowship program director immediately if they become ill and to obtain approval for all other time off well in advance.
Compensation and Benefits
Fellows receive health insurance and an annual salary that increases with each year of fellowship training. Depending upon the subspecialty training program, fellows may opt to moonlight by taking in-house night call at Parkland Memorial Hospital or at either St. Paul University Hospital or Clements University Hospital (opening in late 2014). Compensation for moonlighting is paid as supplemental income and is subject to income tax withholding.
