SUM - Self stUdy for Mastery of topics in MFM

As Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists, we are charged with the care of pregnant women and their fetuses.  The MFM is responsible for a broad range of knowledge including basic science topics such as biochemistry and pharmacology, as well as surgical and technical skills including cerclage and amniocentesis, and clinical diagnosis and management of a wide array of both maternal and fetal medical and surgical complications.  It is a daunting task to become proficient in these areas during training, and equally challenging to remain abreast of new developments.

For this reason, we decided to create the Self stUdy for Mastery of topics in MFM - SUM MFM – a self study tool to be used by MFM’s in training or in practice to help them acquire and maintain knowledge in the field.  It is an online question bank, with detailed answer explanations provided for each question and references for further study. Your one year subscription will provide you with access to all existing questions as well as new content, which will be released every 3 months.  You will be able to evaluate your progress by seeing the percentage of questions you have answered correctly as well as comparing your performance to that of other subscribers.  Thank you for your interest, and we hope you are able to expand your existing fund of knowledge as well as add new information by using this study tool!
