    All applications to Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education programs also must include these standard application materials. In addition, this fellowship requires that:

    • One of your three letters of recommendation is from your residency program director.
      • 2022: The Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) Program Directors developed a Standard Letter of Evaluation (SLOE) for gynecologic oncology fellowship applicant letters of recommendation.

More information about the SLOE is available on the SGO website.
