The fellowship program at the University of Maryland Baltimore is designed to prepare its graduates to become leaders in the academic community and expert maternal-fetal medicine consultants. There is extensive and diverse clinical exposure to patients from a high-risk inner city population, a university based referral population, and a statewide maternal transport service.
The Division of Perinatal Research and the Center for Studies in Reproduction provide opportunities for basic science research utilizing primate and rodent models and enjoy extensive NIH support. The Center for Advanced Fetal Care (CAFC) is active in all areas of prenatal testing and therapy including first trimester nuchal translucency screening and laser photocoagulation for TTTS.
The Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine fully supports the fellowship, collaboration with intensivists, OB anesthesiologists, geneticists, neonatologists, and pathologists providing an excellent educational experience.
