The fellowship is directed by Linda Brubaker, MD. Other faculty include John S. Wheeler, Jr., MD, Mary Pat FitzGerald, MD, and Kimberly S. Kenton, MD. Additional fellowship information can be found on the Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship Web Site.
This fellowship will provide advanced training in female voiding dysfunction and pelvic prolapse. This fellowship is on the cutting edge by combining urology and gynecology expertise. There is graded responsibility from both the gynecologic and urologic perspective so by the time fellows complete the program they will be board eligible in the combined urology/gynecology board certification.
Gynecology senior residents should expect three years of post residency training. Urology senior residents should expect two years of post residency training.
During the fellowship, adequate time will be available for basic science research, including preparing and managing a grant and publishing and presenting scientific ideas. Much additional time will be spent on the surgery of pelvic prolapse and urinary incontinence and on the clinical evaluation of patients with disorders including clinical evaluation, cystoscopy and urodynamic studies.
