Our Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship Program is accredited by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG).
The Board has granted approval for one fellow per year, for a total complement of three.
The Maternal-Fetal Medicine division offers a fully accredited three-year fellowship training program.
Our MFM Fellowship has developed an overarching Goal:
Fellows will become clinicians capable of transforming clinical experiences and observations into “therapies” that have the potential to change lives.
Thus, our mission statement: We transform clinical care and observations into new “therapies”.
This mission is accomplished through clinical integration of maternal and fetal physiology with a comprehensive understanding of disease pathogenesis and clinical intervention. Clinical experiences are transformed in the research laboratory into new “therapies”.
The fellow’s activity is supervised by faculty board certified in Maternal – Fetal Medicine and faculty board certified in Genetics.
Collaboration with researchers from the entire University of Florida faculty is highly encouraged. Resources are available from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Clinical and Translational Institute (CTSI).
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Florida has a strong tradition of excellence in teaching. Because of the quality of the medical school and department we attract outstanding students and residents. Our department frequently receives the college’s award for best clinical teaching of medical students. It is expected that MFM fellows will be strong contributors to this teaching effort.
We have many scheduled teaching conferences, including daily board rounds, weekly Grand Rounds, Neo-MFM Multi Disciplinary Conference, Department Journal Clubs and Research Conferences; bimonthly MFM Fellows’ conference; monthly Prenatal Diagnosis Center conference, Clinical Care conference, Perinatal Pathology conference and Perinatal Echocardiography conference. Faculty, fellows and residents from numerous departments are invited to attend.
