Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship
We are an ACGME accredited Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship, in partnership with University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University. Our program has trained locally and nationally recognized physicians since the late 1970’s. In 2017 the program began its collaboration with the University Hospitals system which has increased the fellow’s exposure to more fetal complications and research opportunities.
During clinical training, our fellows work with:
- Experts in medical and pregnancy complications
- Fetal ultrasound
- Prenatal diagnostic testing (e.g., amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling) and fetal blood sampling/transfusion
Fellows also participate in collaborative care between medical disciplines, including neonatal/surgical/medical intensive care specialists, as well as infectious and cardio-pulmonary disease specialists, among others. In addition, fellows learn:
- Principles of research ethics
- Study design
- Data analysis
- How to publish their results so future pregnant women can benefit from these efforts
