Advanced Fellowship in Women's Health Mission:
To train physicians and associated health professionals to advance clinical care, teaching, scholarship, and system improvements related to the advancement of healthcare for women.
This two-year full-time fellowship prepares residency-trained physicians and PhD graduates in allied health care fields for academic careers. Fellows work with fellowship program faculty to complete an individualized learning plan. The learning plan may emphasize training in research, education, quality, clinical skills and/or program development and defines the fellow’s activities commensurate with career goals. Typical required activities for an MD on an educator or investigator track include 25% clinical effort with the remainder in academic development in research, education, or quality.
Fellows may elect a full complement of women’s health clinical activities including multidisciplinary comprehensive women’s health (with medicine, gynecology, and mental health input), consultative women’s health (with a focus on midlife, well being, incontinence and sexual health), and sub-specialty women’s health (such as osteoporosis, breast, contraception, and women’s mental health clinics).
Fellows can collaborate within the program (MDs and PhD) and with MCW’s Primary Care Fellows.
