The fellowship training program in gynecologic oncology at the UC Davis Medical Center is a three-year program that includes 24 months of clinical training and 12 months of mentored focused research. There will be one fellow accepted annually into the program, with a total of three fellows. The clinical training includes instruction in gynecologic cancer surgery and complex benign surgery, under the direction of the members of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology.
Each fellow will complete four months of clinical training in areas outside the core Gyn Oncology rotations, including medical oncology, radiation oncology, a surgical oncology hybrid rotation, palliative care, and the surgical ICU. The twelve months of research experience will have either a basic science research focus or a clinical research focus, with intensive mentorship in either area.
One of the strengths of the program is a fellow continuity clinic, giving the fellow the experience of managing patients, making therapy decisions, and managing toxicities directly.
We aim to train:
Applicants interested in applying for the fellowship training program in gynecologic oncology can submit their application through the ERAS website.
In addition to the ERAS application, applicants are requested to send copies of CREOG scores directly to Martha Morris. This program requires a minimum of three letters of recommendation. If a rotation was completed at MD Anderson or Memorial Sloan-Kettering and that letter is not included as one of the letters of recommendation please send that to Martha as well.
The UC Davis Gynecologic Oncology fellowship starts on August 1 and will conclude three years later on July 31.
We will be accepting applications starting in December 2023 for the 2025-2026 academic year. The program typically adheres to the SGO common program dates.
The primary location for the program is at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, California. The Division of Gynecologic Oncology also provides services in the Northern California region that extends north to the Oregon border, south to the San Joaquin Valley, east to Reno, Nevada, and west to the Bay Area. All Division members are on the faculty of the UC Davis School of Medicine.
The fellows also spend 1-2 days a month during their clinical years at San Joaquin General Hospital alongside UC Davis faculty, and the senior fellow spends one day a week at Kaiser Sacramento.
