Visiting Residents

The FPMRS Division at The University of New Mexico is pleased to offer two visiting residents spots per academic year. Third year residents in good standing with their residency program and interested in pursuing an FPMRS fellowship are encouraged to apply for this one month experience.  The primary focus of this elective is to gain exposure to research and clinical Urogynecology. 

The resident will work closely with the Urogynecology faculty and fellows. Prior to arrival, we will work with the visiting fellow to involve them in a research project and provide a daily schedule. No obstetrical call will be expected during this elective. 

Visiting residents will be able to observe surgical cases and participate in our weekly journal club and didactics. They will also be expected to provide one formal didactic session at our interdisciplinary meeting. Learning objectives for this rotation are as listed by the ACGME. The resident will participate in the learning provided to our fellows during this time period and not all objectives will be covered.

Interested residents are encouraged to apply in the spring of their second year. Positions are granted on a rolling basis. 

Interested applicants should send an updated CV, a 250-word personal statement about their interest in FPMRS, and a letter of support/good standing from their residency director with the preferred dates for the elective to:

Lisa LaMastra
Fellowship Program Coordinator
Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery

After electronically submitting your application, we will contact you within two weeks and let you know if the time requested is available. If selected, additional information will need to be submitted to the UNM Graduate Medical Education Office. A New Mexico Medical training license will be required.
