SGO Program Director’s Network 2021 common deadline/application dates
The Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) Program Directors (PD) Network seeks to improve coordination of the interview scheduling process by having common dates for application deadlines and interview invites. To accomplish this, the Program Director’s Network will continue to set two common dates for a) application deadlines and b) first mailing of interview invites. This should help residents’ coordinate time off, improve planning for absences in their home program and decrease personal travel expenses.

Some programs may be asking fellowship applicants to submit a Standard Letter of Evaluation (SLOE) with their application to gynecologic oncology fellowship. Use of the SLOE by programs in their recruitment process is voluntary.
