DMaternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship

The fellowship is designed to prepare the trainee to pursue a career in academic medicine. The first year includes an extensive clinical experience at Washington University Medical Center/Barnes-Jewish Hospital. This hospital delivers more than 4,000 patients each year, with 50% high-risk, and all available to the trainee. The trainee's activity is supervised by faculty board certified and board eligible in Maternal-Fetal Medicine and additional faculty board certified in Genetics who provide prenatal diagnosis and sonology. Block time in the Ultrasound and Genetics unit within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is included in the first and second years of training. One of our major strengths is extensive opportunities for research in diverse areas of reproductive biology and perinatology. Trainees are guided to develop a research focus during the first 18 months of training. A mentorship with an appropriate faculty member is arranged utilizing mentors from the entire Washington University Medical Center faculty inclusive of both clinical and basic science departments. Eighteen continuous months during the fellowship are designed and completely protected for the trainee to develop a basic, translational or clinical research interest. These studies will provide a base for a productive career in academic perinatal medicine. Research laboratories that utilize cutting edge molecular, cellular and informatics methods are available within the Division and the Department. Collaboration with researchers from the entire Washington University faculty is highly encouraged. Resources are also available from the Washington University Genome Center and the newly developed Cancer Center. A full array of conferences, graduate courses, and tutorial sessions round out the training experience to achieve Board certification in Maternal-Fetal Medicine. Most of the graduate fellows in the past 10 years are in academic positions at institutions throughout the country.
