Urogynecology and Reproductive Pelvic Surgery Fellowship
Urogynecology Fellowship Coordinator
Why Choose UNC?
Our fellowship program in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of North Carolina is a three-year program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We aim to train FPMRS sub-specialists while promoting the academic goals of teaching and research within this rapidly advancing subspecialty. This goal is accomplished through a multidisciplinary team approach to patient care involving nationally and internationally recognized experts in GI Medicine, Urology, Colorectal Surgery, and Neurology.
Our diverse patient population allows for training opportunities in multiple surgical modalities including vaginal, abdominal, laparoscopic, and robotic approaches. In addition, the medical care offered to patients allows for advanced training in physical therapy, pain management, neuromodulation, and pharmacotherapy. This collaborative effort encourages a diverse range of clinical and scientific viewpoints and experiences.
The School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina and UNC Health comprise North Carolina’s most comprehensive public center for medical care, health careers, education, and biomedical research. The UNC Department of OBGYN also has a very strong research program and was ranked #6 nationally for NIH funding this year. The close association with the nationally recognized UNC School of Public Health further expands the quality and diversity of opportunities available.
