The Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai provides trainees with the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience they need to independently manage complex cases involving patients with gynecologic cancers. Fellows graduate proficient in unsupervised practice and go on to practice gynecologic robotic surgery.
Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship
Our curriculum focuses on diagnosing, treating, and managing gynecological malignancies. Fellows also gain experience in minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery. Learn more about our training program
Fellows work with John Martignetti, MD, PhD, and Peter Dottino, MD, to understand the genetics and genomics of ovarian cancer. Current research is using a repository of blood samples and tissue samples to look for a single copy of tumor DNA. It contains information from our gynecologic oncology patients who choose to participate by donating samples over the course of their care. The researchers create cell lines from the patients’ tumors and develop mouse “avatar” models that grow the tumors. Each sample is linked to clinical information about the patient, her treatment, and response.
