About this fellowship program

The Division of Matenal Fetal Medicine maintains an ACGME-accredited, three-year fellowship that’s designed to prepare fellows for an academic career in matenal fetal medicine. Our primary goal is to provide our fellows with an unparalleled educational experience to prepare them for a career caring for patients with the most complex maternal, obstetric, and fetal conditions. Additionally, we provide the mentorship and support to develop of fellows into future academic and clinical leaders.

Fellows at Ohio State are able to develop areas of expertise, as the breadth of our patient population provides much diversity. Our fellows are given the resources and guidance to design and complete research studies related to their area of interest.
