Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship

Mission & Vision

The ultimate goal of our Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program is to improve the healthcare of women. We accomplish this by training fellows in the comprehensive management of women with gynecologic malignancies, as well as in the field of clinical and translational research. We provide this training in a structured, mentored fashion with consistent and timely monitoring of the fellows’ progress. We are committed to preparing our fellows to become leaders in academic medicine. To this end, we offer our fellows individualized research tracts aligned with their specific areas of interest in order to enhance their opportunities for success.

Director’s Welcome

Gynecologic oncology is a challenging, yet rewarding field, in which we care for women with malignancies of the reproductive tract. We are the only oncologic specialty in Florida, with a team who cares for women uninterrupted throughout the cancer continuum, from diagnosis to surgery, through chemotherapy and, ultimately, in palliative care. It provides for a special continuity with our patients, which is unique in medicine.

Director’s Welcome

It provides for a special continuity with our patients, which is unique in medicine.

Our gynecologic oncology fellowship is built on the premise that to be a successful gynecologic oncologist the trainee must be well-versed in the surgical and medical treatments of cancer patients, and be able to not only critically review the literature, but be a contributor, as well. To this end, fellows spend the first two years of training on research endeavors. Fellows are expected to complete a basic science project on a topic relevant to gynecologic oncology, which may include, among others, cancer etiology, microbiome, novel therapeutics and epigenetics. Fellows are also expected to complete a clinical project in an area which interests them. Past fellows have worked on cancer health disparities, rare tumors and cancer prevention. Fellows are also expected to do a quality improvement project annually.

The clinical training at our program is unparalleled. Fellows become proficient in open, laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, for both cancer and difficult benign diseases. They become familiar with novel therapeutics and participate in the weekly site disease group research meetings to discuss upcoming trials and patient outcomes. Patients from all over the world come to South Florida, and the City of Miami, in particular, for care, so fellows develop humanistic skills to care for women of all races, ethnicities, nationalities and creeds. These experiences truly allow the fellow to learn what it means to provide personalized care for women with cancer.

Additionally, our faculty are diverse, well-published and engaged. Mentorship for trainees is paramount, and we get no greater satisfaction than seeing our fellows succeed. We have truly grown this program to reflect a comprehensive approach to cancer care, and send our graduates out confident that they will be excellent, compassionate and prolific gynecologic oncologists.
