The fellowship at Iowa is designed to permit maximum growth of clinical and research skills. We adhere to a basic philosophy: the fellow is here for academic pursuit and development of world-class clinical skills.
The fellow will receive a minimum of 12 months of clinical training in Maternal and Fetal Medicine and a minimum of 12 months of protected time for research. Additionally, each fellow will be assigned a 1 month rotation in either the medical intensive care unit or the surgical intensive care until and assume the role of supervisor on the Labor and Delivery Unit for a 2 month rotation. Finally, nine months of electives focusing on specific clinical or research areas will also be assigned to each fellow under the direction of the program director.
