The Gender Affirming Genital Reconstructive Surgery Clinical and Research Fellowship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center offers a non-accredited: 1. One-year clinical and research program with a primary focus on a comprehensive list of all available feminizing or masculinizing genital surgeries (primary focus on one or the other, but with exposure to both); and 2. Two-year program to learn all surgical options for both feminizing and masculinizing surgeries.
Fellowships include a 12-month block of surgery and clinic activity within a high-volume tertiary care urology-led interdisciplinary transgender surgery and health program based within a leading academic medical center (hospital ranked # 6, Urology program ranked #7 in nation, per U.S. News and World Report, 2021). Fellows have access to an NIH-funded research laboratory (R01CA201709-01; P.I. Garcia). Fellows participate in, and with time lead urology residents through all pre-operative, operative and post-op/long-term follow-up management of adult and adolescent patients.

Candidates with fellowship training in reconstructive urology are especially encouraged to apply.
