Carolinas HealthCare System at University of North Carolina School of Medicine Charlotte Campus, one of the nation's leading and most innovative healthcare organizations, is dedicated to educating future physicians in the basic science, clinical knowledge, cognitive and technical, and judgment required of surgeons and surgical leaders. A forward-thinking commitment to the transformation of healthcare distinguishes Carolinas HealthCare System from other similar-sized, non-university hospitals.

Our Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship program is a three-year program approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We participate in The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). One fellow is admitted to the program every other year. The fellowship program is designed to train physicians to be skilled surgeons, leaders and academicians in this subspecialty field of women’s healthcare.

Fellows receive training in:

  • Complex and diverse surgeries
  • Urogynecology clinics
  • Clinical research in pelvic floor disorders

The primary outpatient location is the Women’s Center for Pelvic Health – an integrated subspecialty office with core faculty board certified/board eligible in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS) from both urology and obstetrics gynecology. Fellows receive excellent surgical training in abdominal, vaginal and laparoscopic/robotic approaches. Additional training opportunities include colorectal and gastroenterology rotations.
