** GHUCCTS – Georgetown/Howard University DC Clinical Translational Research Training Program (http://www.georgetownhowardctsa.org/education)

Fellows have the opportunity to develop and fine-tune clinical skills at our state-of-the-art MedStar Health Simulation Training & Education Lab, SiTEL (http://sitel.org/about-us/). The center includes a curriculum for skills training and virtual reality modules for endoscopy.

During fellows’ second or third year, they also have the opportunity to participate in a two week Africa fistula mission. Fellows are exposed to international health and cultural competency issues in the developing world. They travel to Kigali, Rwanda, where they learn to perform office evaluations and assist in surgical repair of complex fistulas. These fistula missions are run by the International Organization for Women and Development (www.iowd.org). Dr. Gutman has been participating with this organization for over 10 years and has brought a fellow with him each of the past 6 years. Dr. Richter went as a fellow and now returns annually.

Throughout the program, fellows staff and run the urogynecology resident clinic two half days per month. They are also actively involved in teaching and training residents from MedStar Washington and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
