Division of Gynecologic Oncology
Division director: Matthew Powell, MD
The Division of Gynecologic Oncology is active in caring for thousands of patients each year, investigating basic science discoveries and new clinical protocols to improve cancer treatments, and providing highly specialized training to advance expertise among the next generation of leaders in our field.
Our clinical mission
Our physicians care for hundreds of new gynecologic cancer patients each year, resulting in over 1,300 chemotherapy admissions and more than 1,500 surgical procedures annually. Our specialists see more than 5,000 patient visits each year. Services include the treatment and follow-up of patients with gynecologic malignancies.
Surgical expertise, as well as expertise in the management of patients receiving radiation and chemotherapy, are just part of the services offered. Several clinical trials are available with new treatment options and drugs. In addition to six full-time physician faculty members, our care team includes oncology nurses, nurse practitioners, and a board-certified genetic counselor.
Our patients have access to new and promising clinical trials overseen by an expert and caring multidisciplinary team and we aim toward personalized precision medicine for the cancer treatment.
Our research mission
The Division of Gynecologic Oncology has experts at all levels of research pursuing understanding of the origins and metastasis of gynecologic cancers and propelling clinical breakthroughs in their prevention and treatment.
Our educational mission
Our American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology-approved fellowship program consists of either a three-year or four-year fellowship.
We also offer an observership for physicians from outside the United States who have a special interest in gynecologic oncology. With our team of expert gynecologic oncologists, observers discover the range of direct patient care required to treat gynecologic cancers.
