Fellowship-International

FINAL Logo

A 2017 initiative approved by the FMIGS Board will allow non-US and Canadian fellowship programs to apply for FMIGS-International (FMIGS-I) designation.

A committee composed of a diverse group of clinician-educators has worked hard to establish standards by which international fellowship sites can be recognized for their educational training capacity.

The mission of FMIGS-I is to provide a uniform training program for gynecologists who have completed her/his residency in obstetrics and gynecology and desire additional knowledge and surgical skills in minimally invasive gynecologic so they may: (a) serve as a scholarly and surgical resource for patients and referring physicians; (b) have the ability to care for patients with complex gynecologic surgical disease via minimally invasive techniques; establish sites that will serve a leadership role in advanced endoscopic and reproductive surgery; and (c) further research in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. International fellowship programs will have similar requirements as those in the United States and Canada that includes a 2-year curriculum, didactics, minimum case experience, competency-based training, assessment and research.

FMIGS-I training is not a substitute for FMIGS training and is not intended to prepare minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons to provide clinical care in US or Canada.
