Our mission is to prepare highly skilled subspecialists dedicated to the care of pregnant women and their fetuses, spanning the breadth and depth of the specialty. To achieve this, the educational experiences are tailored to the fellow’s interests and needs. Acquisition and development of research skills is an important component of the educational process and critical and analytic thinking are an expectation for completion of the fellowship. The faculty of the division of maternal-fetal medicine supports the clinical and research missions of the fellowship training program by mentoring fellows to achieve future successes as clinicians, academicians and as national leaders in maternal-fetal medicine.

There are two tracks available to achieve the educational objectives of the fellowship:

  • Track 1: Basic Science/Clinical Research Track – no additional degree conferred
  • Track 2:  Masters in Public Health Track – fellow pursues a Master Degree in Public Health in Maternal Child Health, Epidemiology, Health Behavior, Health Policy and Administration, or Biostatistics through the UNC School of Public Health. Fellows in either track are assigned 12 months of core maternal-fetal Medicine clinical rotations, 18 months of dedicated research time (at which time fellows in MPH track complete their coursework), and six months of electives (one month each of NICU, ICU, OB Anesthesia, Pediatric Cardiology, Genetics, plus a one month selective, where the fellow chooses the rotation).
