SLS Fellowship in Advanced Endometriosis

SLS Fellowship in Advanced Endometriosis

Location: Seckin Endometriosis Center, New York, NY
Program Director: TamerSeckin, MD
Associate Program Director: Amanda Chu, MD

The SLS Fellowship in Advanced Endometriosis at the Seckin Endometriosis Center is a comprehensive two-year program incorporating clinical, research and educational activities.  The primary training goals are to improve patient care, advance scientific knowledge in the field and teach advanced endoscopic skills. The Seckin Endometriosis Center is a referral center for advanced endometriosis. The fellow will be exposed to the full spectrum of endometriosis care including advanced cases of bowel, abdominal and thoracic endometriosis.  This opportunity is appropriate for certain graduating residents and graduates of other gynecologic fellowships who desire to enhance their understanding of endometriosis.  The fellow will work primarily with 3 board certified minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons and have the opportunity to rotate with other surgical subspecialties, for example colorectal surgery, urology, reproductive endocrinology, vascular surgery, depending on their specific interests.  The fellow can expect to emerge fully capable in advanced hysteroscopy, laparoscopy and robotic surgery. 

A unique feature of this program are its ties to the Endometriosis Foundation of America (Endofound), which serves as an avenue for patient advocacy and education.  The fellow will be expected to work with Endofound clinic patients and on Endofound initiatives, such as the annual endometriosis conference.  The Endofound clinic is an opportunity to work with underserved populations who would otherwise receive inadequate care.

The fellow will operate out of Lenox Hill Hospital (New York City, NY), which is affiliated with Northwell Health.  The fellow can expect to work closely with residents in the operating room and have ample opportunity for resident and medical student education.

The fellow will develop a research project and present their findings at the annual SLS meeting or meeting of equal academic rigor during their final year of fellowship.  They will publish a minimum of one research project in an appropriate journal during the course of fellowship training. Funding is readily available for focused projects and additional conferences are encouraged.
