Program Overview

Kaiser Permanente East Bay and University of California-San Francisco Medical Center have partnered to create our ACGME-accredited, integrated multi-disciplinary fellowship training program in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery.

The primary aim of our program is to train surgeon scientists to provide excellent clinical and surgical care to women with complex pelvic floor disorders, to advance the understanding and further the treatment of pelvic floor disorders through independent research, and to advocate for improved recognition and care of pelvic floor disorders within the healthcare system.

The fellowship is a three year training program open to applicants after successful completion of residency training in Obstetrics & Gynecology or Urology. Two years are dedicated to clinical and surgical mastery of diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor disorders, and the equivalent of one year (12 non-consecutive months) is dedicated to research. Our fellowship program balances surgical cases, clinical care, scholarship, and research, as we believe learning to balance these activities during training is crucial to continued success as leaders in medicine.

We accept one fellow per year. Fellows are accepted from Obstetrics & Gynecology and Urology backgrounds based on qualifications, references, and the interview process. Applications for fellowships beginning July 1, 2019 must be submitted through ERAS by March 1, 2018.

Fellowship interview dates:

  • Thursday, April 26, 2018
  • Friday, April 27, 2018
  • There will be an optional dinner Thursday, April 26th
