Graduating fellows from this program are expected to be well-prepared for a career in academic medicine (teaching, research, scholarly inquiry) and to provide clinical care to patients with complex maternal fetal health problems (consults, comprehensive management). Our program is quite collegial in nature. It is well rounded in that the faculty are experienced board certified specialists that have a wide range of expertise. We provide didactic and practical experience in maternal-fetal physiology and pathophysiology, medical complications, obstetric complications, perinatal diagnosis, and fetal interventions. Research is important and it is expected that the fellow will complete a first-author thesis which is publishable prior to graduation.
There are four research tracks available:
1) basic science
2) applied physiology (maternal physiology)
3) clinical research
4) perinatal epidemiology.
As a major maternal referral center, we provide educational and clinical perinatal outreach to referring MDs and multiple hospitals encompassing a 150-mile radius. We have a well-developed Diabetes-in-Pregnancy program, exercise physiology, patient safety program, high risk in-patient volume and high-risk out-patient programs, a major fetal evaluation and treatment unit, and we collaborate with perinatal epidemiology in the School of Public Health. Formal educational rotations in perinatal pathology, genetics, critical care, and neonatology are required. Through the Fetal Care Institute, we work closely with the neonatal division and all pediatric subspecialists. Attendance at monthly journal club, weekly didactic seminars, and monthly ultrasound/genetics conferences is required. Additional educational conferences including weekly SMFM fellow lecture series, monthly perinatal pathology and weekly neonatal teaching conferences are encouraged. Weekly departmental grand rounds and academic conferences are required. First year fellows will participate in the "Introduction to Academic Medicine" lecture series. Advanced degrees (e.g. Public Health, MBA) are available through Saint Louis University
