Message from the Maternal Fetal Medicine Program Director
The Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) Fellowship program is fully accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). This is a three year fellowship and we recruit one fellow per year of training for a total of three fellows. The start day is July 1st of each year.
Our fellowship provides a three year, in-depth experience and training under the direct supervision of the Program Director, the Director of MFM, and highly skilled faculty members. The overall goal of the MFM Fellowship is to develop excellent clinicians through a patient centered approach to care. Balancing maternal fetal risk and gestational age is a guiding principle of perinatology. Treating the whole patient is our founding osteopathic philosophy and is integrated in all patient interactions. At the completion of the fellowship, each fellow will be able to achieve board certification in Maternal Fetal Medicine by the AOBOG.
The fellowship has core rotations in the Ultrasound/Clinic and Consults (outpatient), High-risk services (inpatient), Research, Pediatric Cardiology, Genetics, Pathology and the NICU.
