Training Opportunities

Mayo Clinic has two main opportunities available for those interested in pursuing advanced training in women's health.

Interdisciplinary Women's Health Research Program

The Interdisciplinary Women's Health Research Program is funded by a Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) award from the Office of Research on Women's Health, part of the National Institutes of Health.

Through this program, junior scientists and clinician-investigators have an opportunity to pursue a mentored women's health research experience.

A BIRCWH scholar position is a junior faculty appointment, not a fellowship. Eligible individuals are those who have recently completed clinical training or a postdoctoral fellowship and who will be engaged in interdisciplinary research related to women's health, or sex or gender factors.

Women's Health Fellowship

Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education offers clinicians a fellowship program focused on women's health. Fellows have two track options: an 18-month clinical training track or a two-year Master of Public Health track.

Eligible individuals are those who have successfully completed postgraduate training in an accredited internal medicine, family medicine, or obstetrics and gynecology program.
