The MedStar Georgetown University Hospital / MedStar Washington Hospital Center Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship is a comprehensive training program accredited by The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program is sponsored jointly by the departments of Ob/Gyn and Urology at both MedStar Washington Hospital Center and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
With access to both these institutions, fellows benefit from the wide range of clinical cases that present at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a large community hospital and tertiary referral center, as well as the resources and extensive research activities at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
MedStar Washington Hospital Center logs more than 1,000 new urogynecologic patient visits and performs 600 major procedures per year. With a full complement of urogynecologic, radiologic and neurodiagnostic testing available on the campus, the Hospital Center is known for its use of state-of-the-art medical technology and comprehensive services.
Also, MedStar Washington Hospital Center has an established robotic surgery program. Using the sophisticated da Vinci ® SI ™ Surgical System, surgeons at the Hospital Center are performing more and more minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries. Fellows interested in robotic surgery have the option to train for certification in robotic gynecologic surgery.
