Fellowship Program Structure

The four-year Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program includes three ACGME-accredited years during which fellows complete all ACGME requirements. A fourth, non-ACGME-accredited year, is required and is accredited by the TMB.

The first year of fellowship is ACGME-accredited and consists entirely of clinical rotations. The second, non-ACGME-accredited year consists of three months on the Gynecologic Oncology Service and nine months of basic-science research during which Fellows have no clinical responsibilities. Both the third and the fourth years are ACGME-accredited. During the third year, Fellows focus on research and have no clinical responsibilities. The fourth year is entirely comprised of clinical training on the Gynecologic Oncology Service at Clements University Hospital and Parkland Memorial Hospital.
