Medical College of Wisconsin physicians who specialize in gynecologic cancers collaborate with researchers and academic medical centers around the country to advance the understanding and treatment of ovarian, cervical, uterine, vulvar and vaginal cancers. Their patients, and the entire region, are the direct beneficiaries of on-going research.
The Gynecologic Cancer Program is an active member of the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), an organization that coordinates multi-center clinical trials to advance the treatment of gynecologic cancers. The program is also involved with the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG). Both are cooperative research groups funded by the National Cancer Institute.
Our physicians are also working to establish a Women’s Health Research Initiative and a tissue bank to advance the understanding of female cancers.
Ongoing studies provide access to the best research has to offer in advanced treatments and improved quality of life.

Cancer and the COVID-19 Vaccine
There is currently no data that suggests current or former cancer patients should avoid getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Cancer can weaken your immune system, so we recommend that most patients get the vaccine as soon as possible.
