The UCLA Fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery is a unique program, offering a integrated and multidisciplinary experience with six fellowship-trained faculty from both Urology and Gynecology. Fellows will primarily divide time between Urology and Urogynecology during their clinical rotations. This training involves a diverse range of clinical experiences including evaluation and management of urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, voiding and storage dysfunction, pelvic pain, congenital anomalies, and urogenital fistulae. Surgical experience is notable for a large surgical volume at three sites focusing on complex reconstructive surgery with a balance of vaginal, abdominal, and minimally invasive techniques including robotics. In addition, there is robust experience in neuromodulation, urinary diversions, and mesh removal. The clinical year(s) will also include rotations with colorectal surgery and physical therapy, for cfomprehensive education regarding the care of female patients. Didactic instruction in pelvic reconstructive surgery, urogynecology, female urology, neurourology and pelvic pain are emphasized. The research year can involve any aspect of FPMRS, with clinical or laboratory experience in either urology or urogynecology. We are currently accepting two Urology applicants for two year positions and one Obstetrics and Gynecology applicant for the three year position.
