The vast patient volume and diversity offers fellows exposure to a wide variety of complex pelvic floor disorders. The program provides in depth clinical experience, enhanced by weekly didactic lectures, clinical and/or basic science research and one-on-one mentoring designed to fit the individual needs of each fellow. The outpatient office is conveniently located within 3 miles of North Shore University Hospital, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, and the brand new Katz Women’s Hospital. The fellowship curriculum incorporates dedicated, protected research time with the opportunity to work with world renowned researchers and statisticians at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.
