Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility


Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Fellowship

Director: Jung Choe, MD
Positions: 3

During our three-year fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI), you will gain extensive experience in performing oocyte retrievals and embryo transfers, as well as considerable experience in reproductive surgery. The reproductive surgeries will include, but are not limited to, extensive laparoscopy with operative treatment for endometriosis, fertility sparing surgery, myomectomies, operative and diagnostic hysteroscopy and more.

Upon completion of the program, you will also be skilled in outpatient management of patients with disorders of reproductive endocrinology, infertility, miscarriage, complications of pregnancy (both endocrine and other issues), medical endocrinology and other pertinent aspects of internal medicine.

Our program works specifically with the Cooper Institute for Reproductive Hormonal Disorders. In vitro fertilization/embryo transfer will be performed at the surgical center at the Cooper Institute. Surgeries will be performed at Cooper Hospital and Cooper Hospital Surgical Center. The Cooper group is well known for its clinical and basic science research in various areas of reproductive and medical endocrinology, miscarriage, andrology, immunology, and gynecologic and medical problems tangential but not necessarily directly under the heading of REI.

Rotations

During the fellowship program, you will be expected to make arrangements for the following:

  • a four-week rotation in pediatric endocrinology.
  • two days in a diabetes clinic.
  • one week in perinatal medicine to gain more experience with diabetes and endocrine disorders in pregnancy.
  • a rotation or online course in medical statistics.

These rotations can be at Cooper Hospital or other medical centers including the office of private physicians.

Duties

As a fellow, you will have the same percentage of outpatient duties, IVF duties, surgical duties and research duties each year. The degree of research participation will be variable. Most of your outpatient experience will take place in the New Jersey facility in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey but some will be held in the Melrose Park, Pennsylvania office. Both offices see the same type of patients but you will gain more medical endocrine experience in the Pennsylvania facility.

Research

Fellows should choose a research project no later than the first six months of year one and a thesis on this project must be completed by the end of the three years to fulfill the requirements of the fellowship.

Application Process

Interested parties should contact Dr. Jung Choe or her fellowship secretary Laurie Long.
