Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship Program - Education

The intent of the educational process is to provide the essential understanding and knowledge to render outstanding maternal-fetal care.

In addition, the fellowship will provide opportunities for individualized academic investigations, which are not only required for subspecialty certification, but will foster a lifelong spirit of inquiry.

Lecture + educational conferences

During each academic year, there are regularly scheduled lectures on the fundamentals of perinatal medicine. Regularly scheduled lectures/conferences include:

  • Biweekly conferences reviewing topics on prenatal diagnosis, genetics, teratology, infectious disease and postnatal management of fetal complications
  • Weekly clinical conferences covering the entire field of obstetrics and maternal-fetal medicine (including acute intrapartum/antepartum/postpartum complications, medical complications of pregnancy and fetal and maternal physiology).
  • Monthly multidisciplinary conference of antenatal management and post-hoc review of prenatally-diagnosed anomalies, allowing for collaboration between perinatologists, genetic counselors, neonatologists, pediatric subspecialists and radiologists.
  • Monthly multidisciplinary conferences covering basic science research in obstetrics, gynecology and pediatrics
  • Weekly departmental Grand Rounds
  • Monthly departmental Morbidity & Mortality
  • Quarterly divisional Journal Club
  • Quarterly perinatology-neonatology joint conferences covering clinical scenarios with challenging fetal and neonatal outcomes 
  • Semiannual placental pathology conferences

We encourage fellow attendance and participation at regional and national conferences. The department will pay the expenses for educational conferences where a fellow presents. In addition, each fellow is given an annual CME stipend for travel to conferences, textbooks and other educational expenses.
