Urogynecology & Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery Fellowship

The University of Chicago URPS Fellowship faculty and fellows are proud and excited to announce that we have been OFFICIALLY ACCREDITED! We will be accepting applications for the 2024-2025 fellowship match in a few weeks via ERAS. Our current fellows include Dr. Doug Russo (PGY-5) and Dr. Sarah Ashmore (PGY-6). Beginning in July 2024, Dr. Iris Burgard will be joining as a PGY-5, so we will have a FULL COMPLEMENT of fellows in academic year 2024. 

Virtual interviews will be held on April 25-26, 2024. We are very excited to showcase our program for you!


Program Overview: 

Our goal at the University of Chicago Medicine is to train academic leaders in Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery from Obstetrics & Gynecology and Urology residency backgrounds.

We expect graduates to advance the science of the discipline through research, demonstrate excellence as mentors and educators, and provide outstanding clinical and surgical care. The framework of the fellowship program teaches fellows the necessary skills as well as balancing in- and outpatient clinical-surgical care, scholarship, and research. We believe learning to balance these activities during training is essential to continued success as academic leaders after graduation. 

Core Faculty are listed below, and all contribute to the fellowship program’s robust academic environment.
