Ample opportunities to support fellows’ academic training are in place between NorthShore HealthSystem and the University of Chicago. The NorthShore HealthSystem Division of Gynecological Pain and Minimally Invasive Surgery hosts a weekly preop conference following grand rounds on Wednesdays. There is also a telecasted Friday morning grand rounds from the University of Chicago’s Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology. When the fellows are at the University of Chicago, they will participate in a weekly gynecology conference with didactic discussions of all weekly cases.

In addition to their own academic projects, the fellows will be active participants in resident and medical student education. They will be in the rotation to give lectures, lead problem-based learning sessions, and facilitate journal clubs (both for our division as well as for the residents). The fellow will also be expected to participate in surgical simulation sessions as well as lead simulation sessions for the residents and medical students.
