Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship

The goal of the Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital is to train subspecialists in obstetrics and gynecology to manage complex problems related to pregnancy and to investigate relevant basic science and clinical research questions.

Overview

The Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship provides a broad education in all aspects of maternal fetal medicine. We expect our graduates to become busy and valued clinicians who will be leaders in our field. Training includes:

  • The basic science and physiology of pregnancy
  • Ultrasound and prenatal diagnosis
  • Management of medical and obstetrical complications of pregnancy
  • All aspects of labor, delivery and postpartum care

In addition, trainees will learn research design and statistical methods and will also complete a scholarly thesis. Through affiliated departments and services, fellows will receive education in obstetrical anesthesia, neonatology and critical care. Our institution's affiliation with Harvard Medical School allows for the opportunity for trainees to advance both the basic and clinical science of pregnancy.
