Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Research Scholar Program
INOVA hosts clinical fellows from the Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
We offer international research scholar training and we are a site for the IUGA and the ICS research fellowships. Due to the United States J1 Visa restrictions, no patient contact is allowed for J1 research scholars.
The research scholarship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery is acknowledged by IUGA.
The goal of this program is to assist the international practitioners in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery to reach their academic goals, and to encourage fellows to enter academic medicine by providing them with the breadth and depth of scientific knowledge. The strengths of this program include:
We are the international authorities in endovaginal pelvic floor ultrasonography
We are national leaders in educational research and surgical simulation
We have perhaps, nation's most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic options for women with pelvic floor disorders
We provide a multidisciplinary environment with faculty in urology, colon and rectal surgery, plastic surgery, gastroenterology, radiology, geriatrics, and physical therapy
We present opportunity for involvement in many funded pelvic floor research.
Our clinical practice offers a full spectrum of female pelvic medicine services. The Pelvic floor laboratory offers full spectrum of translabial/transperineal pelvic floor ultrasound (3D) , endoanal ultrasonography (3D), anorectal manometry, EMG, percutaneous neuromodulation testing, and complete pelvic floor neurophysiologic testing.
