Thank you for your interest in the Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Our three-year fellowship offers exceptional training in all aspects of Gynecologic Oncology including complex surgeries, the administration of chemotherapy and radiation, and the management of critically ill patients as well as palliative care. The gynecologic oncology program is an integral unit of the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Iowa. Additional specialty areas include: genetics counseling, infertility, in-vitro fertilization, gynecologic urology, menopause, pelvic pain, prenatal diagnostics, and reproductive care. We also offer excellent training in minimally invasive surgery including both robotics and laparoscopy. As a long standing full member of the Gynecologic Oncology Group/NRG and a Phase I institution we actively participate in clinical trial enrollment, and as a result our fellows gain in-depth knowledge of the design and implementation of clinical trials research. Additionally we have a strong basic science and translational research component to our fellowship, which has resulted in many fellow papers and presentations at regional and national meetings.

Iowa City is a great place to live. The University of Iowa attracts people from throughout the country and world to study and as a result provides many unique educational and cultural opportunities. Big Ten sports, multiple lakes, rivers and parks as well as a vibrant downtown pedestrian mall all provide something unique and interesting for everyone. Learn more about life in Iowa City. 

We look forward to your application and the opportunity to visit with you here in Iowa City.
