Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology Fellowship
About the Program
This two-year clinical fellowship program is intended to provide additional clinical and academic experience in pediatric and adolescent gynecology for individuals who have completed a basic residency program in obstetrics and gynecology and who wish to pursue careers as clinician educators or investigators in academic medical centers.
The program is based in the Division of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and is directed by Lesley Breech, MD.
The Cincinnati Children’s Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (PAG) Fellowship Program seeks to create a new model of gynecological care, in which expert gynecologists work side-by-side with a multidisciplinary team of providers to provide comprehensive care for girls with complex reproductive health issues.
The PAG program maintains a referral practice of pediatric and adolescent gynecology within the Department of Surgery. Our program maintains an ongoing relationship with the Division of Adolescent Medicine, which also houses the teaching program for pediatric residents, UC medical students and the fellowships in Adolescent Medicine.
Few medical centers have expert faculty or the established patient population to support clinical training in pediatric and adolescent gynecology. Nationally, Cincinnati Children’s has the largest full-time gynecological faculty of any institution serving only children and adolescents.
As a result, it has drawn national attention for its leadership in NASPAG, the Committee on Adolescent Health Care of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), and the Adolescent Initiative of the Association for Reproductive Health.
