Collaborative Research In Pelvic Surgery Consortium(CoRPS)

The CoRPS was started by former members of the FPRN® who were looking to do collaborative multi-center research.  For more than 5 years, they successfully completed many multi-center studies and currently lead a Challenging Case Series in the Blue Journal. Now, the CoRPS has found a more permanent home in SGS and a fund has been created to support it.  This fund was established in honor of Drs. Kenton, Iglesia and Richter, who have been involved in the CoRPS as mentors from the beginning.  The CoRPS is open to all SGS members and nonmembers who would like to participate in multi-center research in all subspecialties focused on gynecologic surgery. All career levels are welcome, particularly early and mid-career attendings.
