Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship

Program Overview

The Cedars-Sinai Women's Health Services is dedicated to solving women's problems through medical education, research and patient care with the ultimate goal of improving women's lives.

The mission of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship at Cedars-Sinai is to pursue excellence in teaching and research in an environment of superior clinical care.

The fellowship is a three-year program. Upon completion, fellows will be eligible for American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology certification in maternal-fetal medicine.

Fellows graduating from this program will be well-prepared to pursue a career in academic medicine (teaching, research, scholarly inquiry) and to provide clinical care to patients with complex maternal-fetal health problems (consults, obstetric ultrasound, comprehensive management). Our program is collegial and well-rounded, with a faculty of experienced, board-certified specialists with a wide range of expertise. We provide didactic and practical experience in maternal-fetal physiology and pathophysiology, medical complications, obstetric complications, perinatal diagnoses, and fetal interventions. Research is important, and we require fellows to complete a first-author thesis that is publishable prior to graduation. There are three research tracks available:

  1. Clinical Research
  2. Perinatal Epidemiology
  3. Basic Science

As a major maternal referral center, we provide educational and clinical perinatal outreach to referring doctors and multiple hospitals encompassing a 150-mile radius. We have a well-developed patient safety program and the Diabetes Education Program, a high volume of high-risk inpatients, high-risk outpatient programs, a major fetal evaluation and treatment unit, and a delivery volume of approximately 7,000 per year.
