Our rigorous Gynecologic Oncology Course is classified as a surgical sub-internship. Students can expect to gain valuable experience as a participant during surgeries of women with gynecologic malignancies. Students are also able to actively share in the management and decision-making of these patients during their care. In addition to the operative experience this course offers, students will attend scheduled outpatient clinics to learn about the presentation and evaluation of patients with gynecologic malignancies as well as the longitudinal care of women with gynecologic malignancies. They will work closely alongside the gynecologic oncology team of residents, nurse practitioners, nurses and attendings during the sub-internship.
Students will attend the weekly Gynecologic Tumor Board Conference. This multidisciplinary conference is attended by the gynecologic oncology team, members of diagnostic radiology, radiation oncology, and clinical pathology. Students will participate in Journal Club presentations which are scheduled once during the rotation. In addition to the gynecologic oncology specific responsibilities, every Wednesday the student is invited to attend OBGYN M&M conference.
