About Our Fellowships

The Emory Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics offers certificate fellowship training in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, maternal-fetal medicine, and reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

Fellowship opportunities are also available in the department for obstetrician-gynecologists who desire more in-depth training in family planning, pelvic surgery, and colposcopy and anoscopy.

The focus in each of these competitive fellowship programs is to help trainees gain the knowledge, skills, and experience to become clinical experts in their specialty and productive investigators in the field of women's health.
