SMFM will offer a 2.5-hour program director course designed to help ensure the success of new MFM fellowship program directors. Seasoned program directors will provide content related to administering a fellowship program. In addition, representatives from ACGME and ABOG will review changes in program administration resulting from the transition to ACGME oversight. 

While the course content is targeted to new program directors with less than 3 years of experience, any interested program director or associate program director may attend.
