The fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine is a two-year, comprehensive, multidisciplinary program that produces competent, well-rounded, advanced gynecologic endoscopists who may pursue a career in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery in many different capacities. Surgical caseload ranges from office-based hysteroscopy to advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgery.
Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery fellows work side by side with the minimally invasive gynecologic surgery faculty in the office and operating room in multiple settings, including academia, private practice, a county hospital and a Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Fellows participate in the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative care of patients and experience ongoing supervision by the minimally invasive gynecologic surgery faculty during the clinical months with a graduated level of responsibility as training advances. By the completion of this program, fellows are competent, advanced, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery specialists capable of operating independently and acting in a consultant role.
