The objective of The University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine/H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center Training Program in Gynecologic Oncology is to develop gynecologic oncologists capable of providing world-class cancer care across the full spectrum of academic and clinical contexts.
Our curriculum consists of 12 months of hands-on research experience, followed by 24 months of rigorous clinical training. A remarkably broad exposure to the clinical challenges facing gynecologic oncologists is gained through rotations at Tampa General Hospital (TGH), the primary clinical affiliate of USF Morsani College of Medicine (MCOM), and the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center (Moffitt). These rotations are designed to start each trainee on the path towards mastering the surgical and medical management of gynecologic cancers. In addition, fellows gain experience with clinical cancer genetics, genetic counseling, palliative care and the surgical management of complex gynecologic and obstetrical issues. A well-grounded, meaningful experience with translational and clinical research is provided.
Upon satisfactory completion of the three-year program, successful graduates will be eligible to take the written and oral examinations required for certification in gynecologic oncology by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG).
