Fellowship Program

Weill Cornell Medicine - New York Presbyterian Hospital and the Center for Male Reproductive Medicine offers a fellowship in male reproductive medicine and surgery, including sexual medicine. This is a two-year fellowship, consisting of 18 months of training in infertility and 6 months of training in erectile dysfunction. The fellowship is a combination of basic science research and clinical activities at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital - Weill Cornell Medical College, Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the Population Council, Center for Biomedical Research at Rockefeller University.

The fellowship is designed for urology residents who are committed to careers in academic medicine. It includes a microsurgical training course and basic science research and opportunity for collaboration with any of the scientists at Weill Cornell Medical College, Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center or Rockefeller University. Approximately 60% of the fellowship time is devoted to research and 40% to clinical work. Unique to this fellowship is our collaboration with the Cornell Institute for Reproductive Medicine's IVF program. With five full-time faculty in the Center for Male Reproductive Medicine and Microsurgery, the research opportunities and clinical/surgical volume are unparalleled. The Tri-Institutional aspect of our fellowship is also unique.

During the program, fellows will have the opportunity to assist Dr.'s Goldstein, Schlegel, Kashanian, Paduch and Mulhall in procedures such as microsurgical varicocelectomy, micro TESE, microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration, microsurgical testicular biopsy, penile prosthesis insertion, microsurgical vasovasostomy and vasoepididymostomy, and ultrasound-guided needle biopsy for testis tumor and testis-sparing tumor excision.  Fellows will also assist in office-based procedures such as electroejaculation, testosterone pellet insertion, intercavernosal and/or intralesional injections and the no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy. Fellows will also have the opportunity to assist Dr. Li with global health initiatives.

Residents interested in applying for this fellowship should send a copy of their curriculum vitae and three letters of recommendation, including one from their chairman, to the attention of Marc Goldstein, MD, at the address or email indicated above. All fellows are selected via the AUA Andrology Match Program. Please go to the AUA website to register.
