Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Application Process

Program requirements

Applicants must have completed their core residency training in obstetrics and gynecology prior to beginning the gynecologic oncology fellowship. The residency program should be an approved program in the United States or Canada, and applicants must be eligible for American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology certification. Foreign medical graduates with equivalent qualifications are also eligible to apply and must have completed all three of the USMLE examinations.

Application process

All applicants for the City of Hope Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship must apply through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and submit the following documents:

  • Application
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Additional letter of recommendation from the residency program director
  • Medical school diploma or transcript
  • Personal statement
  • Photograph
  • United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) scores
  • Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) certificate, license or Fifth Pathway (only accepted for those who hold a Fifth Pathway certificate)
  • Photograph
  • Applicants are required to submit Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG) scores directly to the fellowship program by email to Araceli Jimenez, Program Coordinator for the Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship at arjimenez@coh.org.

If any of these ERAS requirements are not met or are incomplete upon submission, the application will not be processed.

Additionally, applicants to our program must register for the National Resident Matching Program and be American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology eligible.

Applicants who match to the City of Hope Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship must immediately start the process to obtain a license from the Medical Board of California.
