Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Training Program

Director: Leslie R. Boyd, MD

Leslie Boyd, MD, interim director of the gynecologic oncology fellowship program.The Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program is an ACGME-accredited three-year training program that leads to board certification in gynecologic oncology by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our academic mission is to train outstanding gynecologic oncologists and all clinical and research activities are performed solely for that purpose.

One fellow is accepted per year. The goal is to train fellows to be physician-scientists, as well as clinical gynecologic oncologists. Fellows begin their first year of training with research in the gynecology research laboratory under the direction of Douglas A. Levine, MD, then proceed to clinical training for the remaining two years, which includes clinical research training. Fellows play an integral role in the clinical practice of gynecologic oncology at NYU. They serve as first assistants on all oncology cases at Tisch Hospital and serve as lead surgeons on all cases at Bellevue Hospital, under the direct supervision of a gynecologic oncology attending surgeon. The fellows help to coordinate all aspects of patient care, lead the weekly treatment planning conferences, and are valuable members of the clinical care team. They play a major role in the supervision and instruction of dedicated residents and medical students.

Gynecologic Oncology fellows rotate through Tisch and Bellevue Hospitals, acquiring a unique education from the diverse patient care settings and benefiting from the specialized care provided at the NCI-designated NYU Perlmutter Cancer Center. In the Division of Gynecologic Oncology, our fellows come first and are highly valued members of our healthcare team.
