Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship

Mission Statement


The overall mission of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship Training Program at Yale School of Medicine is to train leaders in Maternal-Fetal Medicine. Specifically, we aim to recruit the most promising OB/GYN residency graduates, to educate and train them over a period of 3 years so that each fellow graduates as a highly competent independent MFM practitioner. Our goal is also to prepare them for future careers in academic medicine, research, and/or community-based practice. We strive to achieve these objectives within the context of a secure and nurturing learning environment that promotes excellence in the following: prenatal diagnosis, perinatal ultrasonography, obstetric surgery, critical care obstetrics, and inpatient and outpatient obstetric management. We aim to serve New Haven and surrounding communities within CT and beyond and are working to improve lives for women and families in our community and around the world. The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences and the Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine is recognized as a leader in basic, translational and clinical research. We understand the importance of developing the next generation of MFM leaders through obstetric clinical practice, education, and research.

Program Aims

To meet these objectives, we expect our MFM Fellows to:

  1. Provide comprehensive and compassionate treatment to all women and families presenting for care.
  2. Acquire superior surgical skills and develop the knowledge base to understand the indications for and complications of individual surgical procedures.
  3. Acquire competency in managing normal and complicated obstetric patients before, during, and after delivery.
  4. Develop the judgment and communication skills required to serve as a consultant to generalist OB/GYN practitioners.
  5. Acquire the requisite skills in prenatal diagnosis and perinatal ultrasound to diagnose and counsel couples at risk.
  6. Demonstrate knowledge of fundamental areas of MFM as laid out in the Guide to Learning in Maternal-Fetal Medicine. The training program utilizes a combination of didactic lectures, chapter reviews, journal clubs, case conferences and research conferences to achieve this objective.
