Weekly Schedules

Increasing responsibility for the clinical care of gynecologic oncology patients is gradually transferred to the fellow as his/her skills develop. By the end of the first year, the fellow is expected to be able to diagnose and plan comprehensive management of the gynecologic oncology patients. By the end of the second year, the fellow is expected to function as a gynecologic oncologist, including acting as a chief surgeon in all Gynecologic Oncology surgeries under the supervision of an attending gynecologic oncologist. The second/third-year fellows, under the supervision of an attending gynecologic oncologist, manage the weekly Friday clinic at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, while mentoring the first-year fellow. The second-year fellow supports the first-year fellow with regard to clinical responsibility, rounds, and clinical presentations throughout the year.
