The SGO Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity Committee is committed to foster greater diversity, equity, inclusion and accountability within the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO), Foundation for Women’s Cancer (FWC) and the larger health care community to improve health outcomes for all patients.
To that end we are highlighting funded sub internships for medical students from groups historically minoritized in medicine or defined as URiM. Our goal is to diversify the pipeline of trainees with an interest in gynecologic oncology, who will become competitive OBGYN residents and future fellows.
We hope having this information readily available in one convenient place will make it easier for trainees to identify electives that meet their needs, at institutions and departments that tangibly support trainees of color and recognize the importance of building diversity within the field. We hope early exposure to our subspecialty will spark interest in the field, preparing students for competitive training programs, successful residency and fellowship matches, and fulfilling careers caring for patients with gynecologic cancers.
