Advanced training alongside world-renowned physician scientists

Surgery. Chemotherapy. Radiation therapy. Intensive care. Terminal care. Clinical trials. Mentored research. Direct training with internationally recognized specialists.

During your fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology at Roswell Park, you’ll be an integral part of patient care, from robotic surgery and radiation therapy to clinical trials and palliative care.

Our collaborative, translational medicine model connects fellows with clinicians, researchers and specialists who understand every aspect of cancer science. We’re a free-standing NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center – and that makes us the best place to learn, investigate, and cure.

Join us at the forefront of cancer treatment and research.

Fellowship Highlights

During your three-year fellowship, you’ll get intensive, comprehensive training in managing gynecologic malignancies, as well as clinical and translational research.

Your research work will prepare you for the next step towards a career in academic gynecologic oncology, including writing scientific manuscripts and presenting at major national meetings.

The rigorous clinical training covers every aspect of patient care, including comprehensive training in robotic surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, intensive care, and terminal care.

Our translational medicine model connects fellows with clinicians and scientists who understand every aspect of cancer science.

Research Training

Your year of research training will focus on one Roswell Park’s six key areas of scientific inquiry:

Surgical Training

You’ll be fully trained in surgical techniques, including simple and radical hysterectomies and surgical staging, at our Center for Robotic Surgery.

Meet Dr. Guru

Roswell Park’s Center for Robotic Surgery is led by Khurshid Guru, MD, co-inventor of the world’s first Robotic Surgery Simulator (RoSS). Like a flight simulator for pilots, RoSS accurately simulates the daVinci® robotic surgical system.
