The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Andrology Fellowship provides a state-of-the-art experience in male reproductive medicine.

About the Program Heading link

The 13-month fellowship is designed to provide a foundation in male reproductive microsurgery, innovation and medicine for future faculty in academic programs. The fellow participates in all male reproductive surgical and microsurgical cases with Drs. Craig Niederberger, Samuel Ohlander and Mahmoud Mima, and engages in the majority of clinics providing andrology-specific patient care. The fellowship includes approximately 40% of time available to participate in research and an innovation curriculum in the University’s unique inter-college Innovation Center. At the Innovation Center, faculty from the Colleges of Medicine; Engineering; Architecture, Art, and Design; Business; and personnel from the University of Illinois at Chicago Office of Technology Management collaborate on projects including medical device design from inception to commercialization.

Length of Fellowship

The 13-month duration of the fellowship allows for a 1 month overlap between the incoming and graduating fellow so that the new fellow can see the full arc of the innovation curriculum from start to finish.
