American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology

  • The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology is an independent, non-profit organization that certifies obstetricians and gynecologists in the United States.
  • Founded in 1927, the ABOG is one of 24 specialty Boards recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
  • Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) fellowship programs are approved by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) to train MFM subspecialists. A MFM subspecialist, as defined and certified by ABOG, is a subspecialist in obstetrics and gynecology who, by virtue of additional education, cares for and/or provides consultation for women with complications of pregnancy. This activity requires advanced knowledge of the obstetrical, medical and surgical complications of pregnancy and their effect on both the mother and the fetus. It also requires expertise in the most current approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of women with complicated pregnancies.
