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. These Vincent fellowships are formally approved by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, giving the department rare national distinction.
