 Learning Objectives

  • Acquire in-depth clinical knowledge to manage common and rare conditions in pediatric and adolescent gynecology
  • Master surgical skills to manage complex gynecologic conditions in pediatric and adolescent patients, including but not limited to minimally invasive surgery in children and adolescents, and surgical management of congenital Mullerian anomalies
  • Develop deeper understanding of outcomes-based research, with expectation to develop a novel research project, culminating in a presentation at a national scientific meeting and manuscript submission
  • Foster an environment dedicated to the education and mentorship of trainees, including medical students, residents and fellows

Overview
The overarching goal of the University of Colorado Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Fellowship Program is to train academic pediatric and adolescent gynecologists who are outstanding clinicians, surgeons, teachers and researchers. The clinical educational objective of the two-year training program is to provide trainees with the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to serve as consultants to pediatric subspecialists, pediatricians, family practitioners, obstetricians and gynecologists. Graduates should be able to provide consultation for patients of diverse backgrounds from birth up to age 18-21 years with gynecologic concerns as well as adults born with reproductive congenital anomalies and differences in sex development. The PAG graduate should also learn to work with a multi-disciplinary team of specialists in the care of individuals with complex conditions.

The fellow will learn the evaluation and management of common problems in pediatric gynecology as well as uncommon and more complex conditions, such as congenital reproductive anomalies, differences of sex development (DSD), pediatric and adolescent pelvic masses and gynecologic malignancies, gynecologic disorders in medically complicated children, reproductive endocrinopathies, transgender care, sexual abuse and vulvar conditions. The educational objectives for the fellowship are designed to be graded such that as fellows advance in training, the learning objectives will involve more complex and multi-disciplinary care of PAG patients. Procedural objectives are similarly designed to become more complex as fellows advance through training.

In addition, the fellow will obtain necessary skills to perform clinical outcomes-based research in pediatric and adolescent gynecology. Time will be allocated such that fellows will spend 70% of their time in clinical duties and 30% of their time in research and other scholarly activities. To maintain appropriate skills, the fellow will have a small adult practice including a half day of Gynecology-only clinic per week and occasional shifts on Labor and Delivery.

Our goal is that graduates will pursue careers that advance the field of pediatric and adolescent gynecology in all areas, including research, education and patient care.

The clinical educational objective of the training program is to provide fellows with the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to independently manage children and adolescents with medical and surgical gynecologic conditions, including congenital anomalies. The fellow will also participate in managing DSD conditions in children and teens in an interdisciplinary setting through patient care and management conferences. The fellow is expected to educate students and residents and to perform clinical or basic research.

Clinical:
The fellow will participate in all PAG clinics, DSD clinic, peds hematology clinic, PAG-surgery and PAG consults, inpatient as well as in the Emergency Room.

Research:
Fellows will usually enroll in a 3-week biostatistics or epidemiology course in July of their first year. This course helps to develop or expand skills needed to participate in research during their fellowship. Other courses can be taken dependent on fellow experience and interest. Research is anticipated to lead to national presentations and publications.

Other Issues:
Overall balance is approximately 60-70% clinical activities and 30-40% academic time. The fellow will have an opportunity for adult gynecology care in clinic; is expected to take general gynecology call 3-4 nights/ weekend days per month (home call) as well as one monthly OB call. The fellows will participate in the bi-annual half day seminars on research, teaching and other fellow-specific topics (Common Fellowship Curriculum), offered to all fellows in the Department of OB/GYN.
