Welcome to the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS) Fellowship website at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. We thank you for your interest in our two-year fellowship program.

On this website you will find comprehensive information about our MIGS fellowship program, links to UConn Health, and all of its programs as well as information about the Greater Hartford area.

The primary goal of the UConn program is to provide exceptional education to the MIGS fellows in order to improve patient outcomes. Fellows will acquire the advanced minimally invasive skills that will allow them to treat many complex gynecologic conditions. The fellow will learn medical and surgical management of advanced gynecologic conditions in order to provide patients with the full spectrum care. UConn has a multidisciplinary team for the management of endometriosis and the fellow will work with our colorectal surgery, urology, radiology colleagues. They will also have the opportunity to work with the gynecology oncology and urogynecology colleagues to further master their surgical skills and cover all surgical approaches including hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, vaginal, and robotic surgery. Graduating fellows will be adequately trained and mastered surgical approaches to pursue a career in academic medicine or clinical practice.
