2018 fellowship graduate

Surgical training is probably the most important aspect of a gynecologic oncology fellowship, and Mayo Clinic is one of the best surgical training programs in the country. The apprenticeship model allows for graduated autonomy so that fellows are ready for practice after training. However, what I appreciated most about fellowship at Mayo Clinic was Mayo's philosophy that the patient comes first. I've carried that philosophy into my practice, and it has allowed me to provide the highest quality of care in any setting.

2019 fellowship graduate

What I appreciate the most about my fellowship experience is the surgical training. I learned how to perform complex open and robotic surgeries using innovative technology. The surgical experience is enhanced by working closely with each staff for a period of 2-3 months at a time and participating in simulation workshops and cadaver labs.
