Under the direction of Annekathryn Goodman, MD, director of the Gynecology Oncology Fellowship Program at Massachusetts General Hospital and associate professor at Harvard Medical School, the International Gynecologic Oncology Observership provides physicians from around the world the opportunity to expand their knowledge and deepen their expertise in caring for women with gynecologic cancers.
This is a two-month observership, with no more than one physician invited for each rotation. Due to a revamping of the Harvard Medical School curriculum and student clerkships, we will be limited to the number of physicians we can invite this year. When completing your application, please indicate your preferred months to observe.
Each applicant must be a practicing clinician on staff at an institution and fluent in English. The observership program is not suitable for students or individuals seeking residency opportunities at Mass General or other United States institutions. Participation in our observership program does not have any bearing on any pending or future residency or fellowship applications. The Mass General observership program is not affiliated with any Harvard Medical School program(s).
This position is unfunded. The visiting physician is expected to find his or her own funding for travel and living expenses, and is responsible for making living arrangements in Boston. Learn more about living in Boston
Massachusetts law and the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 require that observers obtain health insurance during their time at Massachusetts General Hospital. The United States government does not provide health care; observers are responsible for purchasing private health insurance.
The curriculum for the International Gynecologic Oncology Observership at Massachusetts General Hospital includes attendance at daily didactic lectures, observation in clinics or the operating room and work in our simulation center to hone operative skills. Please be advised that in an observership program, visitors will not physically engage with any patients or advise on any cases; visitors will strictly be observing/shadowing our professional staff.
At the completion of the observership, each participant is expected to prepare and present to the faculty, students, residents and fellows at Mass General a lecture on a topic related to gynecologic oncology.
Mass General does not award medical education credits for observerships; upon successful completion of an observership program, visitors will receive a certificate of attendance.
