The fellowship includes abundant protected research time (18 months) for the fellows to develop a thesis that will be defended at the end of their training.  Mentorship in clinical, translational and basic science research, as well as enrollment in the University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute Training and Professional Development Program or graduate level courses in statistics and epidemiology, provide the framework for the fellows to launch an academic career and advance the field of Maternal-Fetal Medicine.

Typical coursework will include these graduate level courses.
