Program Director: Farr Nezhat, MD, FACOG, FACS

Under the directorship of Dr. Farr Nezhat, the department of obstetrics and gynecology at NYU Langone- Long Island is offering a 2 year minimally invasive surgery fellowship program. Applications are currently being accepted for the program year beginning July 2022.

Dr. Farr Nezhat is a board certified gynecologic oncologist who is a pioneer and leading authority in the minimally invasive surgical treatment of malignant and benign pelvic gynecologic pathologies. His expertise lies in treating ovarian, uterine, and cervical cancers; as well as severe and multi-organ endometriosis, pelvic mass, ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids.

The Fellow will work side-by-side with a multidisciplinary team of providers and will rotate at NYU Langone- Long Island and New York- Presbyterian Hospitals (Weill Cornell Medical Center and Lower Manhattan Hospital). Several other faculty members, including urogynecological, general, and colorectal surgeons will work closely with the fellow.

The comprehensive program will offer:

  • Core training in gynecologic minimally invasive surgery, including advanced laparoscopic, robotic, hysteroscopic, abdominal, and vaginal surgery for complex, benign and malignant conditions;
  • Training in risk management such as minimizing adverse events and managing laparascopic, robotic, and hysteroscopic complications;
  • Participation in clinical research;
  • Development of teaching and leadership skills;
  • Training in fiscal accountability

NYU Langone Hospital- Long Island is the clinical campus for NYU LISOM (Long Island School of Medicine). The hospital is a tertiary (Level III) care center with approximately 4,700 deliveries and over 3,500 surgical gynecological procedures annually. NYU Langone Hospital-Long Island has its own independent, fully accredited OB’GYN residency program (5 residents per PGY level) and a Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship program.

In addition to the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Division, the department has the following divisions: maternal-Fetal medicine, General OBGYN, Gynecologic Oncology, Urogynecology, and Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility.

Applicants for the fellowship program must be graduates of a 4-year accredited Ob/Gyn residency and hold a valid medical license, or otherwise be legally authorized to practice medicine in the state of New York.

Physicians outside the United States can apply for an observership, which would allow the applicant to observe in the operating room and in rounds. Observerships are approved by NYU Langone Hospital- Long Island’s Human Resources department and are subject to additional requirements. (*Due to COVid-19 observerships are temporarily on hold*)
