Atlantic Health System’s Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship is designed to prepare fellows for successful careers in academic medicine, private practice or anything in between. The program, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), is based in Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center in northern New Jersey, close to New York City.
Fellows develop excellent skills in patient care, research and education. Our program offers a comprehensive approach to clinical evaluation and management for women with disorders of the pelvic floor, including urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, defecatory dysfunction and voiding dysfunction. A balance of surgical and non-surgical management is stressed. Surgical management emphasizes vaginal and laparoscopic minimally invasive techniques, including vast experience in robotic-assisted surgery.
Rotations with other specialties, such as urology and colorectal surgery, are also offered. The colorectal surgery experience happens at Morristown Medical Center in Morristown, NJ, and the urologic surgical experience happens at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ.
Our division has a very active clinical research program with a full-time clinical research nurse. Fellows are mentored as they develop their own original research ideas, and we have a strong research infrastructure to support these projects. Basic science and genetics research mentorship is provided byone of the founding members of a leading reproductive endocrinology practice and fellowship program based in Morristown. Fellows may present their research at any scientific meeting of their choice.
Elective rotations may be tailored to the interests and backgrounds of each individual fellow as appropriate.
