Additional Information

The clinical focus of the UAB, MFM Fellowship, includes high risk pregnancy management, prenatal diagnosis, infectious disease, and medical complications of pregnancy. One-third of our annual 4,200 deliveries result from complicated gestations, as we receive most of Alabama's maternal-fetal transports. All obstetric sonography is managed by our division; we perform over 1,000 genetic amniocentesis, and over 2,000 comprehensive ultrasound scans each year. Approximately 2,500 patients each year are managed in our high-risk antepartum clinic staffed by our residents, fellows, and faculty. A broad range of clinical research initiatives are supported by division personnel and resources. Space, support, & collaboration are also available for infectious disease, biochemical and physiological research. Most of our clinical research support is based within the UAB Center for Research and Women's Health, and we are also one of the clinical centers in the NICHD MFM Units Network. We have maintained a comprehensive perinatal data base since 1979, ultrasound data since 1985, and medical genetics data since 1988. Since we have a large staff of board certified faculty, our fellows have only a minimal impact on maintaining the clinical volume and other service commitments. Our continued dedication to research and publication provides a unique environment for establishing both productive academic and rewarding clinical careers. Note: Through a separate application process, a qualified candidate may be considered for an integrated Medical Genetics residency and MFM fellowship program, comprising 4 years of postgraduate training.
