Fellows’ Pelvic Research Network (FPRN)®
In 2007, the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons (SGS) sponsored the creation of the first fellows multi-center research network the Fellows’ Pelvic Research Network (FPRN)® to promote research training and expose fellows to multi-center studies. The idea for this research network was suggested by a fellow. SGS considers the FPRN® an important initiative within the context of its mission statement to promote education and research in Gynecologic Surgery.
The purpose of the FPRN® is to enable fellows to work together cooperatively and conduct multi-center research projects. The FPRN® and its research projects are operating under the mentorship and supervision of the Advisory Board which includes representatives from the SGS Executive Board and Research Committee.
This network is open to all fellows. Interested fellows from accredited and non -accredited programs across the United States and Canada are welcome to join. Fellows applying for membership in the FPRN® must be an Associate Member of SGS and be prepared to be active participants in the network’s research activities. All members of the network will have the opportunity to be actively involved in developing, implementing, conducting, and publishing research studies.
