Program Description:

North Shore has offered a one year independent fellowship in minimally invasive gyn surgery since 2009, and was recently granted AAGL accreditation as a 2 year program beginning in 2013.  This certified program is designed to expose the physician in training with extensive experience in both the outpatient and inpatient surgical management of gynecologic disorders using the full arsenal of minimally invasive techniques.  The physicians within the Division of Gynecology have been leaders in the field of advanced laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery for nearly two decades and established one of the first robotic gyn surgery programs in the region.   The fellow will be integrated into the resident teaching schedule including both didactic and simulation training offered in the laparoscopic training facility.  The fellow will also serve as faculty in training programs presented at the Bioskills Surgical Training Center, North Shore-LIJ's surgical education institute.  In addition, the fellow will be provided ample time to complete required research endeavors and have the opportunity to take graduate level courses at the Elmezzi Graduate School of Molecular Medicine.
