Overview

The goal of the Fellowship is to train individuals to provide specialized patient care in Maternal-Fetal Medicine, as well as to prepare candidates for a career in academic medicine. It is a three-year training program, as required by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The clinical rotations include: maternal-fetal medicine service, obstetrical ultrasound, reproductive genetics, fetal echocardiography, anesthesia/intensive care unit, and elective rotations. This is a combined program sponsored by Wayne State University and the Perinatology Research Branch of NICHD. The program is housed at the Detroit Medical Center and the Wayne State University campus in Detroit, Michigan, where the Branch is located. The program is approved by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology for seven positions; a combined Maternal-Fetal Medicine and Genetics Fellowship is also available. The program includes laboratory and clinical research (18 months are dedicated to research).

Our Fellowship emphasizes a multi-disciplinary approach to complications of pregnancy. There is a strong emphasis on the prenatal diagnosis of congenital anomalies with ultrasound and on the performance of invasive procedures such as amniocentesis, chorionic villous sampling, and intravascular transfusion. The Branch publishes approximately 50 peer-reviewed papers per year. Last year, members of the Branch received numerous awards for clinical and translational research.

Detailed information about the training program is available at the following website: www.med.wayne.edu/prb External Web Site Policy. The website contains information about each current Fellow (as well as the Faculty) and his/her publications and awards. The Director of the Fellowship is Dr. Sonia Hassan, and the Associate Director is Dr. Roberto Romero, Chief of the Perinatology Research Branch and Head of the Program for Perinatology Research and Obstetrics.
