Pipeline for Talent
To help young physicians pursue novel research ideas and become tomorrow’s leaders, a major portion of funding from The Vincent Memorial Hospital Foundation supports fellowships, in which 12 OB/GYN doctors in four subspecialties spend three years rotating between clinical and research settings.
