The Fellowship in Maternal-Fetal Medicine is a three-year program designed to qualify the candidate for advanced certification in Maternal-Fetal Medicine by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Inc. The Fellowship was first approved by the Subspecialty Board in 2009 and was recertified in 2014. The program accepts one Fellow a year two of every three years. The Director of the Fellowship is Dr. Elly M-J. Xenakis.
The Fellowship program has three major components: clinical, research, and didactic. The goal of the program is to train well-rounded clinician-scientists that are clinically and surgically competent, familiar with relevant laboratory procedures, and fully understanding of theoretical and technical aspects of research to enable independent study. Emphasis is placed on continuation of an academic career. Clinical, research, and teaching activities are given equal importance and fellows are provided opportunities to achieve their full potential in each area.
