2020 VIRTUAL INTERVIEWS
We are quickly approaching the exciting time of our interview season. Given the continued uncertainty of the current climate, we are anticipating that there still may be some travel restrictions extending into the summer months. This may restrict the ability of some programs to invite applicants to their programs and similarly may restrict fellow applicants from traveling to interviews in certain geographic regions. For this interview season, the FMIGS board unanimously felt that we should create a level playing field for programs and applicants and that all programs should conduct virtual interviews. This is in line with other ob/gyn subspecialty interview processes for this interview season. We know that this will be an adjustment and novel process for some programs.

AAGL’s Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (FMIGS) was developed to address the concern that most graduating residents in obstetrics and gynecology were not fully trained in modern endoscopic surgery.
The Fellowship is offers a two and three year comprehensive training program in advanced gynecologic endoscopy to graduating gynecologic residents who are interested in a focus in minimally invasive surgery.
• Offered through more than 50 hospital sites.
• Educational objectives focus on evidence-based medicine, anatomical principles, instrumentation, operative laparoscopy, operative hysteroscopy, and robotics.
• In-depth experience using state-of-the-art techniques.
• 400+ AAGL fellows members have graduated.
- The fellowship director is ultimately responsible for the design and implementation of the fellowship-training program. There must be a single fellowship director with authority and accountability for the operation of the program. The fellowship director must have adequate time to oversee the training and have no conflicts of interest that could interfere with this responsibility (e.g. serve as a PD for another fellowship).
