Master's Degree Program
A special course of study has been created to enable completion of a master's degree by obstetrician-gynecologists admitted to the UMMC Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology's maternal-fetal medicine subspecialty fellowship program.
Admission to the master's degree program is limited strictly to OB/GYN physicians accepted to undertake this three-year American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology-certified fellowship program located within the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at UMMC.
It is the first program of its kind in the United States, begun in 1997. A minimum of 30 semester hours of study is undertaken during the three years of the fellowship program, culminating in the successful completion of a thesis presentation and defense.
