The Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship is a three-year program located at The Mount Sinai Hospital. The first year of the fellowship is dedicated to research. Second-year fellows alternate between two-month service rotations and specialty rotations, including pathology, surgical intensive care unit (SICU), surgical services, and palliative care. In your last year, service rotations alternate with urology, radiation oncology, breast and vascular services, and research and elective time. You may be called, during any rotation, to return to gynecologic oncology or selected operative procedures.
As part of our curriculum, fellows receive both inpatient and outpatient training. Inpatient teaching occurs in the wards as part of patient rounds and in the outpatient offices of our full-time faculty. Fellows also receive individualized training in our operating rooms. We offer weekly educational conferences and daily inpatient reviews.
Outpatient teaching occurs at The Tish Cancer Institute in the Leon and Norma Hess Center for Science and Medicine. On Thursday mornings, fellows and residents attend our Gynecologic Oncology Clinic in the Ruttenberg Cancer Center with Monica Prasad-Hayes, MD. Our Ruttenberg Treatment Center includes 48 exam rooms and facilitates collaboration between our surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other medical staff. Our new infusion center has 54 private infusion rooms, laboratory testing, an onsite pharmacy, and an oncology-trained staff.
