Education: UCLA Obstetrics and Gynecology Fellowship Programs
The UCLA Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is committed to providing a robust and rigorous training ground for future physician-scientists. Our integrated and multidisciplinary fellowship programs are structured to train academically oriented obstetrics and gynecologists, innovative scientists and world leaders in women's health. We have six of the 7 ACOG-recognized subspecialty fellowship programs including, Complex Family Planning, Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Gynecologic Oncology, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Maternal-Fetal Medicine and Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, plus a unique fellowship in Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Training in Urologic and Gynecologic Cancers. Our fellowship programs are led by nationally recognized leaders in these disciplines, preparing our fellows for distinguished careers in clinical practice, education, research, and public policy and service.
The Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS) Fellowship, our newest program, provides a 2-year comprehensive training curriculum in advanced gynecologic endoscopy and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. Our program is fully accredited by the the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL), the leading association promoting minimally invasive gynecologic surgery among surgeons worldwide. The UCLA MIGS Fellowship is led by program director Tamara Grisales, M.D., Health Sciences Assistant Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and associate program director Sukrant Mehta, M.D., Health Sciences Assistant Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The fellowship will commence with the 2021-22 academic year.
