Ohio State’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offers two excellent fellowship programs: the Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) Fellowship Program and the Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program.
The Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine maintains an ABOG-accredited, three-year fellowship that’s designed to prepare Fellows for an academic career in Maternal Fetal Medicine.
Upon completion of the fellowship, our Fellows have managed the care of a variety of patients with complicated pregnancies.
Fellows at Ohio State are able to develop areas of expertise, as the breadth of our patient population provides much diversity. Our Fellows have the ability to design and complete clinical and basic research, with 18 months of protected time to ensure the completion of thesis work.
Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center serves as a regional perinatal center for central and southeastern Ohio. Our Medical Center performs more than 4,000 deliveries annually, 600 plus of which are maternal transports.
The Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine maintains an active fetal therapy unit, which performs:
- Intrauterine transfusions
- Placental laser therapy for twin/twin transfusion
The division also has active clinical programs in:
- Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy
- Substance abuse in pregnancy
The multidisciplinary genetics program includes:
- MFM specialist dual-boarded in MFM and Genetics
More than 500 amniocenteses and chorionic villus samplings are performed annually through the program.
The division’s perinatal research laboratory performs basic research in prematurity, diabetes and preeclampsia. The lab performs cell culture, protein chemistry, ELISA and all aspects of molecular biology.
The division is part of the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD) MFM Units Network, which is a unique opportunity for access to data and publications. Opportunities also exist to collaborate with researchers in other Ohio State departments. Fellows are encouraged to participate at national meetings.

The Division of Gynecologic Oncology maintains an ABOG-accredited, three-year fellowship, which consists of one year of research followed by two years of clinical training.
Gynecologic Oncologist Fellows are exemplary physicians who are trained to provide consultation and management to patients with gynecologic cancer.
This is accomplished through training Fellows to be:
- Surgeons who are able to manage a full range of technical surgical issues and complex medical situations that arise in women with gynecologic cancers
- Teachers who can transmit the information learned during their fellowship to the patients they manage, as well as to other medical personnel such as obstetricians and gynecologists
- Researchers whose investigation of the clinical and basic scientific questions will lead to improved outcomes in women with gynecologic cancers
