Women's Health Fellowship

Dr. Holly Thacker
A program designed to create the women’s health leadership of the future.

The two-year curriculum promotes a comprehensive definition of women’s health that is interdisciplinary in its nature. Although the fellowship is administered through the Ob/Gyn & Women's Health Institute and the Medicine Institute, several other departments and institutes participate in training.

At Cleveland Clinic, we embrace the women’s health leadership triad:

  • Clinical skills
  • Focused research
  • Interdisciplinary education.

A core element of the fellowship is for women’s health scholars to develop their clinical skills alongside experienced healthcare providers including women’s health internists, gynecologists, breast surgeons, psychiatrists and radiologists. This practice leverages the diverse resources of the Cleveland Clinic, including the Center for Specialized Women’s Health on the main campus, and women-centered practices at regional family health centers.

It is important for the scholar to understand the application of research skills in an interdisciplinary arena. We ensure that the Women’s Health Fellowship program takes advantage of the core strengths of Cleveland Clinic by guiding scholars toward areas such as cardiovascular diseases in women, breast cancer and osteoporosis.

By definition, women’s health cuts across multiple specialty areas. The Women’s Health Fellowship targets key areas for deeper knowledge into disease states as they affect women throughout the female life cycle.
