The Fellowship Program in Gynecologic Oncology at the University of Kentucky is approved by the American Board of OB/GYN as a 3-year program, consisting of 12 months of research (protected) and 24 months of clinical experience. Upon completion of the fellowship, the newly trained Gynecologic Oncologist will have the necessary skills to accept an academic position, evaluate and manage patients with gynecologic malignancies, and participate in collaborative research activities. He / she should also be able to implement cancer education programs, participate in institutional & national clinical trials, and assume a leadership role in cancer centers.
The Division of Gynecologic Oncology is an integral part of the Markey Cancer Center at the University of Kentucky. Under the leadership of Dr. Mark Evers, the Markey Cancer Center conducts research in a variety of basic science programs (cellular immunobiology, molecular genetics, physical chemistry, molecular biology, matrix proteins, cancer pharmacology, and nutrition); several clinical research areas (molecular oncology, pediatric oncology, radiation oncology, gynecologic oncology, surgical oncology, clinical biology and neuro-oncology) and in cancer control and cancer epidemiology. It maintains core research facilities shared by medical center faculty, including faculty members in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology. Since its establishment in 1983, the Markey Cancer Center has experienced a steady increase in numbers of faculty, research programs, funding and space. In FY 2009 the Markey Cancer Center had more than $31M in funding, including over $25M in Federal funding, $10M+ from the National Cancer Institute and $6M+ of non-Federal funding. The Markey Cancer Center has a total center controlled research space of over a 150,000 net square feet. The center treats more than 2,000 new cancer patients each year and serves as one of the major cancer treatment and referral centers in the region.
The clinical research facility has a
computerized tumor registry that contains all gynecologic oncology cases
monitored since 1969. Strong support is provided from the Biostatistics

The Division has five gynecologic oncology attending physicians and a very large volume of clinical cases that uniquely promote the development of skills necessary to demonstrate competency in all aspects of management of patients with gynecologic cancer. Additional critical care education and training in the da Vinci intuitive surgical system is also provided in the Gynecologic Oncology fellowship program. A weekly tumor conference formalizes the gynecologic oncology components in the education of students, residents and fellows. Representative tumor conference lectures are listed below for examination as .pdf files.

Over the past 5 years, the Division has enjoyed steady growth in faculty number, research productivity and patient volume. This expansion has provided an opportunity to structure the fellowship in such a way as to provide a comprehensive educational program which prepares fellows to become outstanding clinician scientists in our specialty. The fellows' training, service and responsibilities are entirely in gynecologic oncology with no obstetrical call responsibilities.
