Rotations

The clinical rotations are supervised by the MFM and fetal imaging faculty. This rotation is combination of the clinical MFM services – fellows spend time on labor and delivery in a supervisory/safety role, perform inpatient MFM consultations, work in fetal imaging, and perform reproductive genetics consultations. Fellows hone their skills in management of complicated patients, consultative technique and ultrasound performance and interpretation.

The research rotations are supervised by the research faculty and the MFM research director. The fellows will spend the bulk of the time on clinical, translational and ultrasound research including metabolomics, epigenomics and proteomics. Fellows submit abstracts for regional and national conferences and are encouraged to complete 1-2 additional clinical or ultrasound projects in addition to their thesis.

The fellows are assigned to 2 months of labor and delivery in which they support the resident team in a supervisory role and are involved in the care of all admitted patients.

The fellows rotate for one month on the surgical critical care rotation under the supervision of the surgery intensivist team.
