Fellowship Programs

Clinical Education

Gynonc - OR

Training in the surgical and medical modalities needed to function successfully as a gynecologic oncologist occurs during the second and third years of training at Tampa General Hospital. The balance of activities at TGH provides a broad exposure to the full spectrum of surgical approaches used to manage gynecologic malignancies, including open and minimally invasive surgery (both robotic and traditional laparoscopy). 

In addition to surgery, fellows gain experience with chemotherapeutics and targeted biologic agents, clinical genetics, and palliative care via outpatient care activities, participation in daily work rounds, and dedicated tumor boards at each institution. During the first two weeks of their clinical year, all fellows rotate through the Critical Care Service at Tampa General Hospital before starting full-time clinical duties. Similar to the research fellow, clinical fellows participate actively in protected weekly didactic sessions.

USF/Tampa General Hospital

Tampa General Hospital (TGH) is a 1,010-bed academic teaching hospital located in downtown Tampa, Florida. Founded in 1926, TGH has grown into one of the largest hospitals in the United States and functions as the primary quaternary referral center and an essential safety net health care facility for the 10-county Tampa Bay region. More than 8,000 full-time TGH physicians and staff provide comprehensive surgical and subspecialty medical care. In 2023, U.S. News & World Report ranked TGH as the best hospital in Tampa Bay and the 4th best hospital in the state of Florida. TGH is also ranked as one of the nation’s top 50 hospitals in six medical specialities, including Obstetrics and Gynecology (#9 in the U.S. and #1 in Florida) and GI surgery (#19 in the U.S. and #1 in Florida). Additionally, TGH is ranked as “high performing,” or among the 10% of U.S. hospitals in five additional specialties, including Cancer. 

The Gynecologic Oncology Service at TGH, staffed entirely by MCOM faculty, is growing rapidly and now performs nearly 900 major surgical procedures each year. Outpatient oncology and palliative care services are provided at the TGH Cancer Center (TGHCC), which houses a dedicated 20-bed Infusion Center. Dedicated clinical research facilities are located immediately adjacent to the TGHCC in the USF MCOM South Tampa Campus. In addition to its busy surgical services, TGH serves as one of the major obstetrical referral centers for the Tampa Bay region and is home to the only dedicated Fetal Intervention Center on Florida’s west coast. This exposure allows fellows to also gain practical experience with the surgical management of complex gynecologic and obstetric issues.
