The Gynecologic Oncology Division of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) is committed to making strides towards the goal of cancer eradication. West Cancer Center has unique partnership with UTHSC which includes collaboration with Methodist Healthcare and other major healthcare and research institutions in the city and region. This innovative partnership unites the foremost experts in patient care, research and education in order to provide the most comprehensive cancer care available in the Mid-South region.
The program faculty consists of four gynecologic oncologists. The UTHSC/West Cancer Center Department of Gynecologic Oncology is dedicated to producing highly competent and influential gynecologic oncologists of high character, outstanding clinical capabilities and with commitment to discovery and the advancement of science to be used in the fight against cancer.
The three-year fellowship is comprised of one dedicated research year followed by two years of clinical training. Although the first year of fellowship is dedicated to research, continued involvement in research is encouraged throughout the fellowship.
Our clinical curriculum is focused on comprehensive care of women with gynecologic malignancies. During the second two years, our fellows will be mentored by experts in gynecologic oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, urology, chemotherapy, ICU medicine, pathology, genetic counseling, and palliative care. Our goal is for fellows to experience graduated responsibility towards independence in the complex surgical and medical management required to care for our unique patient population.
