Emory's Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS) Fellowship is a multidisciplinary, ACGME accredited program for qualified candidates who have completed a residency in either urology or obstetrics and gynecology.

We provide diverse clinical, research, and teaching opportunities in female urology, urogynecology, colorectal surgery, and minimally invasive surgery. Specifically, we offer a large surgical volume inclusive of vaginal, abdominal, robotic, and laparoscopic approaches to pelvic reconstructive surgery.

The program also provides extensive training in the diagnosis, evaluation, and non-surgical management of female pelvic floor disorders. There are opportunities to participate in clinical, basic science, and/or translational research projects related to female pelvic floor disorders. Opportunities to gain exposure in geriatrics and pelvic floor physical therapy are also available.

The fellowship is two years for urologists and three years for OB/GYNs. One fellow is accepted per year. Fellowship applications are accepted via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). See below for more about the application process.
