Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Education and Training
We actively participate in educating OB-GYN residents and medical students. As a resident rotating through the Maternal-Fetal Medicine service, you will be supervised by an attending physician.
You also will be responsible for managing a busy antepartum service along with an attending physician.
We also are affiliated with the newly developed Fetal Care Center, the region’s only multidisciplinary program for the care of women and their families affected by fetal anomalies and other complications.
Through your work at multiple CHS Maternal Fetal Medicine Centers, you will receive broad exposure to prenatal and postnatal care and will observe firsthand the many types of lethal and nonlethal fetal anomalies. You will learn their genetic and physiological bases and how to manage such anomalies.
You will learn how to perform:
• Chorionic villus sampling
• Fetal shunt placement
• Intrauterine transfusions
These are among the conditions you will see:
• Diabetes (pregestational and gestational)
• Hypertensive complications
• Marfan syndrome
• Thyroid disease
• Liver disease
• Cerebrovascular accident
• Myocardial infarction
• Preterm labor
• Cervical insufficiency
• Uterine abnormalities
• Higher-order multiple gestations
• Preterm premature rupture of membranes
• Abruption or bleeding in pregnancy
