Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship

About the Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship


The Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery (Urogynecology) Fellowship at BIDMC is a combined training program where fellows rotate in our clinics in Boston as well as at Mount Auburn Hospital (MAH) in Cambridge. Our clinician-researchers are trained to provide excellent patient-centered care for women with pelvic floor disorders, while fostering an inclusive, collaborative and interdisciplinary learning environment.

The goals of our fellowship program are to:

  • Train the next generation of clinicians who are skilled pelvic surgeons, passionate clinicians and insightful scientists, who have the comprehensive abilities to conceptualize and address female pelvic floor disorders with an array of treatment options based on individual patient needs.
  • Implement and publish results of research projects addressing the key issues in clinical areas of urogynecology.
  • Teach and collaborate with medical student, residents, fellows and faculty from other sub-specialties.

With these goals in mind, we strive to ensure our graduating fellows are capable of independent practice. Among these objectives, we work to ensure that upon graduation, the fellow will be confident in performing a variety of surgical reconstructive procedures, utilizing laparoscopic, vaginal robotic and abdominal surgical modalities as needed. They will be able to evaluate and treat a variety of disorders in female pelvic medicine in the outpatient setting and be familiar with the most common urologic, gastrointestinal and colorectal diseases that impact women.

The curriculum consists of 12 months of protected research time and 24 months of clinical, including female pelvic medicine, urology, gastroenterology and colorectal surgery.
