Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine
The three-year MFM fellowship program develops clinician-scientists who are prepared to conduct research, teach and provide high-quality, subspecialty care. The program serves Regional One Health, as well as other affiliated practice sites around the Memphis tri-state area.
Education of the fellows involves several other academic departments and divisions such as Neonatology, Pathology, Anesthesiology and Genetics. Fellows learn how to become effective consultants to Ob/Gyn generalists for women with complicated pregnancies and to take an evidence-based approach to medicine.
Residents play an integral role in the division's care for high-risk patients. The MFM rotation team is comprised of PGY1, PGY2 and PGY3 level residents. The PGY3 takes ultimate responsibility for the hospitalized patients and organizes the team to fulfill duties.
Residents attend clinic to learn to care for high-risk patients. Goals and objectives for resident education follow CREOG and ACGME guidelines, and education and competency is evaluated.
In addition to conferences with neonatology and pediatric surgeons, a tracing conference is held weekly where residents and faculty members review fetal heart rate tracings and discuss management.
Medical Student Education
Medical students participate in the care of high-risk patients as a member of the team, both on the wards and in clinic during their third-year clerkship on Ob/Gyn. Elective rotations in ultrasound and high-risk medicine are also available for fourth-year students.
