Teaching of Residents and Students:

Though teaching obligations are predominantly the responsibility of the attending faculty members, serving as a resident and student educator is also the responsibility of the fellow. As the inpatient team leader, it is anticipated and expected that the fellow will serve as a teacher of inpatient management skills for the residents and medical students on the service, and impart basic gynecologic oncology knowledge. The fellow will also present resident lectures at the resident "school time" two or three times a year.

Benign Gynecology:

The fellow will not be participating in the care of patients with benign gynecologic diseases except those that are admitted by the Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service attendings or the gynecologic oncology service at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. Further, the fellows will not take obstetrics service attending calls—either in the hospital or out—and will not staff benign gynecology clinics or consultation suites.

Lectures:

Along with resident "school time" lectures, the fellows will occasionally lecture at the Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service fellow didactic sessions no more than once a year. The fellows will also be invited to give lectures for institutional continuing medical education conferences and for select national society continuing medical education courses.
