Additional Information

The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship Training Program at BIDMC is a comprehensive clinical and research fellowship designed to accommodate each fellows special interests. The first year of the fellowship is primarily clinical, the second year is primarily research, and the third year is a combination of clinical and research. The fellows have a total of 18 months dedicated research time during the fellowship. The fellows are guided by a mentoring team which will be tailored for each fellows particular clinical and research interests. The team consists of a basic science or clinical research mentor, a clinical MFM faculty mentor and the Director of the fellowship. Our academic environment is particularly supportive for clinical, translational and basic science research endeavors in all aspects of Maternal-Fetal Medicine. The fellowship offers extensive clinical experience in high-risk obstetrics, prenatal genetics, sonography and ultrasound-guided procedures, and excellent basic science and clinical research opportunities. There is well over 50% protected time for educational and research activities. It is our objective that upon completion of training our fellow will have completed all of the requirements of the ABOG Division of MFM for Subspecialty Board Certification, and will be prepared to be leaders in academic and clinical MFM. The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) approved fellowship training program. We follow the guidelines set forth for the training of Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists.
