Application Process

The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) manages a separate match for female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS) programs on behalf of the American Urogynecologic Society and the Society for Urodynamics and Female Urology. FPMRS no longer participates in the Ob-Gyn Fellowship Match.


There is one position available on a competitive basis each year in the Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship. The fellowship position begins on July 1 each year.

How to apply

You must apply through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) for Fellowship Applicants.

For the fellowship position starting on July 1, 2018, candidates may begin using ERAS Fellowships beginning Nov. 15, 2016. The Mayo Clinic Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship application deadline is March 31, 2017.
