Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the UMKC School of Medicine has an approved three-year Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship training program. The fellowship is designed to develop clinician-scientists who are prepared to conduct research, teach, and provide high quality subspecialty care. In the course of training, time is dedicated for research, coursework, ultrasound interpretation, genetic counseling, pathology, neonatology, OB anesthesia, and applicable clinical involvement. The clinical training involves two tertiary perinatal centers in the principal teaching hospitals and provides extensive experience in managing high risk pregnancies including advanced perinatal interventions. The research opportunities include translational molecular, developmental pharmacogenomics, advanced ultrasound and MRI imaging, and clinical investigations. Conferences, graduate courses, and tutorial sessions round out the training to allow the fellow to achieve Board certification in Maternal-Fetal Medicine.
