SGO Program Director’s Network 2020 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.

Common Dates

Wednesday, April 15, 2020: Fellowship application deadline
Wednesday, May 6, 2020: Invitation to interview sent out to applicants

For the fellowship positions starting on July 1, 2021, candidates may begin using ERAS Fellowships beginning Nov. 21, 2019. The application deadline is April 15, 2020. The fellowship programs will participate in the common invitation to interview date selected by the SGO Program Directors as May 6, 2020.

The SGO Program Directors Network has adopted a standard policy that Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship programs will not contact applicants to gauge interest or to discuss rank post interview. The PD Network encourages programs to let applicants know about the PD Network recommendation and to set the expectation that applicants will not be contacted by the program.
