Message from Program Leadership
Thank you for your interest in our program.
We are seeking candidates possessing a strong interest in pediatric gynecology and minimally invasive surgery in children as well a commitment to clinical excellence, the ability to work well in multidisciplinary teams and who have a passion for innovation. Applicants with dedication to furthering clinical care and research in our field will do well in our program.
The fellowship is completed over two years, offering fellows a balance of clinical training, research, and educational development. Formal training in the areas of biostatistics and epidemiology is also available through the Baylor College of Medicine and we strongly encourage our fellows to take advantage of one of these.
We are a very supportive and welcoming group. We all like to share our interests and celebrate each of our successes. We try to get together regularly outside of work to have meals together, go to exhibits and outdoor events. Although we all come from different places and have different backgrounds, it is remarkable how quickly we start to feel like a great team.
