  • Why did you choose this program?

    I chose Rutgers REI Fellowship program because I found that it provided all of the qualities I was seeking in a program: strong clinical training, a robust surgical experience and dedicated research mentors. It is apparent that the long-term goals ofthe fellows, their interest in research and their continued learning are priorities.The fellows are exposed to breadth and depth of not only infertility but also the complex diversity of reproductive endocrinology. The fellows are still very much interested in operating and participating in a variety of laparoscopies and hysteroscopies, which is not the case at many other programs around the country. Iwas also incredibly impressed by the program’s dedication to basic science and clinical research. I am very interested in basic science research and am hoping to have the opportunity to explore lab research throughout my fellowship and into my career. I found a significant benefit in having two MD/PHD female physician scientists within the division.Rutgers offered a wealth of resources including a superb faculty of clinicians, excellent facilities and equipment, access to a variety of research fields, both clinical and basic science, and, most importantly, a highly-dedicated fellowship program team. I have really enjoyed my experience so far and am confident I made the right decision.
