Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Residents play an integral role in the divisions care for the high-risk patients. The Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) rotation team consists of PGY1, PGY2, and PGY3 level residents.
The PGY3 takes ultimate responsibility for the hospitalized patients and organizes
the team to fulfill the duties. Residents also attend clinic in order to learn to
care for high risk patients. Typical patient pathologies cared for by residents include
hypertensive disorders, diabetes, hemoglobinopathies, asthma, thrombophilias and collagen
vascular diseases. Goals and Objectives for resident education follow CREOG and ACGME
guidelines; 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 students participate in 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. In addition,
elective rotations in Ultrasound and High Risk Medicine are also available for fourth-year
