Obstetrics & Gynecology Summer Fellowship for Medical Students

NYU Langone’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offers a six-week summer fellowship to students at NYU Grossman School of Medicine who are between their first and second years of study and would like to explore a career in obstetrics and gynecology. Students enrolled in the accelerated three-year MD pathway complete a six-week summer fellowship.

Our goal is to provide participants with a clinical overview of obstetrics and gynecology.

Subspecialty Concentrations

Fellowship subspecialty concentrations vary from year to year and may include any of the following:

  • Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility
  • Maternal-Fetal Medicine
  • Complex Family Planning and Abortion
  • Gynecologic Oncology
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery
  • Uro-Gynecology
  • General Obstetrics and Gynecology

Preceptor Guidance

We assign each student a faculty member as preceptor. Your preceptor is your clinical lead and will be your main point of contact. You will work with your preceptor in their clinical environment. They will help you choose a topic for the final presentation.

Patient Care Experiences

During your summer fellowship, you will have the opportunity to experience patient care in a variety of settings, including labor and delivery, the operating room, the private office, and the hospital. You will have one 12 hour shift on the Bellevue Labor and Delivery floor.

Summer fellows gain a range of patient care experiences, including the following:

  • the obstetrics and gynecology history and physical
  • office-based obstetrics and gynecology
  • obstetrics and gynecology operative procedures
  • treatment of common obstetric and gynecologic conditions

Didactic Training

You are expected to attend grand rounds and integrated care grand rounds each week, and meet regularly with the Obstetrics and Gynecology Summer Fellowship directors for didactic and reflection.


Each participant has the opportunity to participate in ongoing Ob/Gyn research. Dedicated research time is built into the weekly schedule. The research project may not be in the same field as your clinical preceptor.

Final Presentation

The Summer Fellowship culminates with final presentations. Each student will prepare a 10 minute presentation on a topic of interest, a case report or original research. Final presentations are attended by the fellowship director, all clinical and research preceptors, Dana R. Gossett, MD, chair of NYU Langone’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Abigail Winkel, MD, MHPE, vice chair of education.
