Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Fellowship

The Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Fellowship at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin is a two-year program providing training to academic gynecologic surgeons seeking comprehensive knowledge of advanced gynecologic disorders and extensive surgical and clinical expertise focused on laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques. The fellowship leads to a board-approved focused practice designation, as well as the ability to contribute research to the field of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.

Upon completion of training, graduates are prepared to practice independently, become leaders their field, engage in scientific discovery, offer consultation to their peers and deliver high-quality, value-based, patient-centered care.

The goals of the program align with the vision and mission of Dell Med, training fellows to serve their communities through innovative, evidence-based approaches to the surgical intervention and management of common and complex gynecologic conditions. Fellows learn, practice and reinforce person-centered, multidisciplinary, interprofessional care in a system that recognizes and rewards value.

The Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery is affiliated with the Department of Women’s Health.
