  • Fellowship Information

    The MFM Fellowship Program takes 36 months to complete with between 12-18 months protected for research so that fellows complete their thesis work both for the ABOG MFM subspecialty certification process and obtain a masters of science degree in maternal-fetal medicine. We participate in the National Match Program for Fellows, including five of our six MFM fellowship positions. The sixth position or Chesley Fellow is separately considered as an individual applying to us for MFM fellowship training and the pursuit of an academic research career in the area of preeclampsia/eclampsia.

    The University of Mississippi Medical Center’s Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship is divided equally between both basic science and clinical research in addition to clinical responsibilities. Beginning with the July 2013 entering class, we have adjusted the fellowship experience to include the new rotations in the intensive care units and a richer supervisory experience in the Labor & Delivery Unit of the Women’s Hospital. As noted earlier in the general description, we have a vigorous clinical and basic research program in which all of our MFM fellows participate.

    Since the early 1980s, we have a heritage of having trained several dozen MFM subspecialists who are practicing throughout the United States in a variety of academic and subspecialty practice settings. Approximately 90% of our MFM fellows are board-certified in the specialty; we can’t remember a time when a fellow hasn’t finished their thesis work prior to graduation and completion of the fellowship program.
