Our mission is to prepare highly skilled subspecialists dedicated to the care of pregnant women and their fetuses, spanning the breadth and depth of the specialty. To achieve this, the educational experiences are tailored to the fellow’s interests and needs. Acquisition and development of research skills is an important component of the educational process and critical and analytic thinking are an expectation for completion of the fellowship. The faculty of the division of maternal-fetal medicine supports the clinical and research missions of the fellowship training program by mentoring fellows to achieve future successes as clinicians, academicians and as national leaders in maternal-fetal medicine.

Fellows are clinical faculty in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and they actively participate in the education and supervision of medical students and residents.
