Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship
The fellowship in gynecologic oncology is supported by the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics
and the University of Wisconsin Paul P. Carbone Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The overarching aim is to
produce outstanding clinician-scientists to act as leaders, healers, consultants and researchers in the
field of gynecologic oncology. This three year program begins with the research component followed by
two clinical years. The educational curriculum will be organized and comprehensive, structured in
accordance with the guidelines listed in the Guide to Learning in Gynecologic Oncology published by the
American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The program will stress the complete care of women with gynecologic malignancies. Through the expertise of
both gynecologic oncologists and other expert faculty, fellows will learn the broad spectrum of skills necessary to properly manage this complicated patient population. They will experience graduated responsibility towards independent management of complex surgical procedures and medical situations. High-quality, safe, and evidence-based chemotherapy administration will be emphasized. A collegial and supportive environment will maximize the learning experience in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.
During the dedicated research year, fellows will be able to choose from basic, translational, or clinical
projects. Continued involvement in research activity will be encouraged throughout the fellowship. All
fellows will study basic experimental design, biostatistics, and cancer biology.
Although the minimal requirement involves the generation of a thesis, the larger goal is cultivating a
passion for research which will continue for a career. Fellows will have the option of pursuing additional
research training as part of a masters or doctoral degree program. These advanced degree programs are
available through established degree programs on campus in either clinical trials
(Institute for Clinical Trials Research) or basic/translational investigation (Endocrinology-Reproductive Physiology Program).
