Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Residents play an integral role in the divisionís 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 students.
