Stanford Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program

The Stanford fellowship program in Gynecologic Oncology is a three year fully accredited program via ACGME with emphasis on clinical care, education, and research in gynecologic cancer. One fellow is chosen per year. The first year of the fellowship is dedicated to the fellow’s research thesis. The program director will help identify a mentor and thesis for the fellow based on the fellow’s interests within the outstanding and rich research environment available at Stanford University. The second and third year are dedicated to clinical care on the gynecologic oncology service at Stanford University Hospital, where the fellow is the leader of the inpatient team. The second-year fellow starts the year with a month-long rotation in the SICU, while the third-year fellow will spend part of their time at our county medical affiliate, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. During this time, fellows are expected to develop expertise in full-spectrum clinical care including open, laparoscopic, robotic, and reconstructive surgeries, in addition to the administration of chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapies. Throughout the three years, fellows are expected to participate in journal club, tumor board, didactics, and clinical trials review. Additional opportunities for pursuit of research and other academic development during the clinical years is strongly encouraged.
