Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility

The Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility is dedicated to clinical care of patients with infertility, endocrinopathies, childhood cancer, pediatrics, endometriosis and resident education.  Programs in pediatric and adolescent gynecology and fertility preservation in cancer patents are coordinated with St. Jude and LeBonheur Children''s Hospitals .  The REI division also coordinates minimally invasive gynecologic surgery with the MIGS division.  The divisional faculty and staff are committed to advancing reproductive medicine through education, research and clinical excellence.

AAGL/ASRM Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

Dr. Ammar Dhari, Fellow in Minimally Invasive Surgery sponsored by Regional One Health at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, is in a 2-year academic fellowship (2015-2017) accredited by the AAGL (formerly the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists) and the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).  The goal of the training program is to graduate a surgical specialist ready to provide expert, evidence-based, consultative care in any setting whether academic or community-based.

The faculty includes full-time academic and community-bas5d physicians.  These have included obstetrician/gynecologists, fellowship trained minimally invasive surgeons, urogynecologists, gynecologic oncologists, urologists, colo-rectal surgeons, reproductive endocrinologists, and radiologists many of whom are internationally acknowledged.  The curriculum over the 2-year period includes a balance of laparoscopic (including robotics), hysteroscopic, and vaginal surgery.

The fellow is expected to initiate, present, and publish gynecologic research relevant to minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.  The fellow is expected to present at national meetings.  The fellow’s clinical practice is associated with the Comprehensive Gynecologic Center.  The fellow works with the academic faculty as a junior attending in teaching residents and medical students and to develop their skills as a mentor. 

We will recriut our next fellow in late 2016 for the 2017-2019 cycle.  Application to the national programs is through the AAGL and ASRM at http://www.aagl.org/service/fellowships.
