The fellowship program is designed to provide advanced training in the care of the pregnant woman and her fetus and in the use of advanced technical instruments and research skills. There is a strong emphasis on ultrasound and genetics (including a Combined MFM/Clinical Genetics Fellowship option), as well as an intensive exposure to invasive procedures/fetal therapy/prenatal diagnosis. The purpose of the fellowship program, therefore, is twofold. First, the graduate of the fellowship program is expected to function as a subspecialist in maternal-fetal medicine. Second, the graduate of the fellowship program is expected to be trained in advanced clinical and/or basic research and, thus, capable of expanding the knowledge base of this subspecialty.
