The Division of Gynecologic Oncology in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at York Hospital offers a three-year graded experience in gynecologic oncology. This fellowship is approved by the American Osteopathic Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and prepares the successful candidate for subspecialty certification in gynecologic oncology by the AOA.
The general breakdown of the fellowship is as follows:
Year 1 – clinical year
Year 2 – research year
Year 3 – clinical year
During the research year, it is expected that the fellow will take two graduate level courses, one in biostatistics and one in any healthcare-related field. It is also assumed that during the research year the fellow will conduct research leading to the publication of a paper in a peer-reviewed journal. With the research available through our Tumor Registry and the clinical material available, there is a wealth of information that can be mined for this activity.
Requirements: Potential candidates by mandate of the Residency Review committee of the AOA must have taken part 1 of the General Obstetrics and Gynecology Board Exams prior to matriculation in the fellowship.
