Combined Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Urology Fellowship

Directed by Dr. Doreen Chung, associate professor of Urology, the Combined Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Urology Fellowship is a one-year fellowship at Columbia University Irving Medical Center uniquely designed to offer extensive experience in all aspects of voiding dysfunction. The fellow will be exposed to the office and surgical management of pelvic floor disorders (including vaginal surgery, robotic sacrocolpopexy, and sacrohysteropexy), BPH (TURP, Green Light Laser), incontinence and voiding dysfunction (slings, neurostimulation, Botox, artificial sphincters, male slings, and prolapse repair), and video-urodynamics. In addition, there will be ample clinical research opportunities with emphasis on writing and academic presentations.

The faculty consists of four fellowship-trained urologists who specialize in male and female voiding dysfunction and pelvic floor reconstruction, and two fellowship-trained urogynecologists with expertise in pelvic floor reconstruction and minimally invasive urogynecology. Evaluation of fellow will be conducted bi-annually to ensure meeting requirements set forth by the programs goals and objectives.

The fellowship will run from August 1 to July 31.
