  • Skilled and mature academic gynecologic cancer surgeons who have a proven commitment to excellence in patient care, academic pursuits, and education.

  • Faculty members who are full-time NCI scientist/investigators who bring not only a unique vision, but access and exposure to resources to which fellows are rarely exposed.
  • Patient volume and mix, both of disease processes and socio-cultural demographics, such that the Fellow is fully exposed to all diseases that a Gynecologic Oncologist must be expert at managing.
