Additional Information

The goal of our fellowship program will be to train MFM clinicians with an emphasis on expertise in scientific investigation leading to an academic career.  Whether graduates of our program choose an academic or clinical practice, both require the ability to practice MFM competently and to function as an independent investigator capable of conducting, evaluating, and applying results of relevant scientific research and literature.  We will train fellows to become subspecialists and consultants by teaching the appropriate application of currently available diagnostic and therapeutic modalities in clinical MFM.  The training program will be based upon the learning objectives described in the Guide to Learning in Maternal-Fetal Medicine and will incorporate the six core competencies identified by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  The program has been designed to meet or surpass all requirements and directives outlined in this guide.  The fellows trained in this program will be taught the skills necessary to become leaders in the field as teachers, researchers, and clinicians.
