Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia (EMCP)
Residents participate in the full range of gynecologic oncology procedures and the complex pre- and post-operative care of gynecologic oncology patients. Patients receiving radiation therapy are supervised by our Division of Radiation Oncology. Our residents have the opportunity to participate in the care and plan follow-up of these patients. Patients who receive chemotherapy are cared for in our Cancer Center. Our residents have the opportunity to participate in the care and plan the follow up of these patients as well as take part in monthly inter-disciplinary tumor boards, which include the departments of pathology, radiology, radiation oncology, and medical oncology.
Fox Chase Cancer Center
Fox Chase Cancer Center provides the majority of our gynecologic oncology and complex gynecologic surgery experience in the setting of a hospital completely devoted to oncology. Fox Chase Cancer Center is a leading Cancer Center where learning is accomplished in an interdisciplinary model involving gynecologic and surgical oncology, medical oncology, and radiation therapy, as well as social services and support systems including hospice and end-of-life care. Fox Chase Cancer Center has a large faculty of six attending physicians, and has just started a new gynecologic oncology fellowship program. Their operating room schedule is extremely busy, and our residents work alongside the gynecologic oncologists usually as the first assist. They also have the opportunity to work with the surgical oncology group, and with medical and radiation therapy members of the care team. The residents participate in the full range of complex surgical gynecologic procedures that gynecologic oncologists perform, and the associated pre- and post-operative care. During their rotation the residents will participate in the educational program provided for the Gynecologic Oncology Fellows.
Abington Reproductive Medicine
This state-of-the-art practice provides our residents with the opportunity to gain a surgical and ambulatory appreciation in the field of reproductive medicine. Here at Einstein’s main campus, over 75% of our patients receive Medicaid, and often do not have assisted reproductive technology available to them. In order to provide our residents with an excellent experience in the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility, we have built a strong and longstanding relationship with Abington Reproductive Medicine. Dr. Larry Barmat, one of our former graduates, is a senior member of this practice, and serves as our chief of the division of Reproductive Endocrinology.
Einstein Medical Center Montgomery (EMCM)
EMCM opened on September 29, 2012, and was built from the ground up in a neighboring area that was in need of a comprehensive medical facility. This state-of-the-art hospital was recently awarded as one of the country’s top 10 most beautiful hospitals.
In the past year, EMCM performed approximately 1900 deliveries. The hospital has a level III NICU and full service antenatal testing unit. Our PGY 2 residents spend 2 months at EMCM, while our PGY 3 and 4 residents participate in the more advanced surgical procedures. There is no call taken at EMCM. There are four private general OBGYN groups practicing at the hospital, in addition to subspecialty groups in gynecologic oncology (from Fox Chase Cancer Center) and the urogynecologists Drs. Donald DeBrakeleer and Sonya Ephraim (from The Institute for Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery), and Maternal Fetal Medicine from our group here at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia.
