Announcement of New Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division Director in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Science

May 01, 2018

Dear Members of the Yale OB/GYN community,

It my pleasure to announce that Dr. Uma Reddy has been named the new Director of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Yale. Dr. Reddy is a leading figure in this field, having overseen many of the largest and most influential trials in obstetrics while directing the NIH/NICHD Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units (MFMU) Network. Her work has had a profound impact on obstetrical practice both in the United States and internationally.

Dr. Reddy graduated from Brown University Magna cum laude and also received her M.D. degree from the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Dr. Reddy also holds an M.P.H. in Biostatistics from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She completed her residency at Johns Hopkins and remained there as a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar. She completed her Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship at Thomas Jefferson University. She is currently Medical Officer in the Pregnancy and Perinatology Branch of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development as well as Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Georgetown University.

Dr. Reddy is widely recognized as a scholar, educator and mentor. She has published approximately 185 papers, many in the most impactful journals including eight in the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

Dr. Reddy will begin her new role in September of this year.

I would also like to thank Dr. Michael Paidas for his tremendous leadership of the division during the search process and in this transition. Under his direction the section expanded the number of faculty and clinical services, building upon the division’s long history of excellence in the field. Dr. Paidas will remain in his current role of Vice Chair for Obstetrics.

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Reddy to the Yale OB/GYN family.

Hugh Taylor, M.D.
