Reproductive Endocrinology Fellowship

The Michigan Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology is a three-year program that provides fellows with the knowledge, skills, and experience vital to become a successful leader in the field.

Program Overview

Reproductive Endocrinology fellows benefit from a multidisciplinary approach that brings together the expertise of endocrinology and infertility specialists, OB-GYNs, reproductive urologists, lab technicians, and research scientists. Our program is structured to provide 18 months of research experience and 18 months of clinical training (13 months of clinical training, followed by 18 months of research experience, concluding with 5 months of clinical training.) Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in elective rotations, including Pediatric and Adolescent GynecologyComprehensive Gender Services Program, Reproductive Urology, Medical Endocrinology, and Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery.

Our goal is to help advanced trainees identify their paths as future leaders in reproductive endocrinology and to provide them with resources for their individual success.

Core Program Components

Clinical Training

Fellows actively participate in all aspects of patient care and gain valuable and extensive experience. This includes the evaluation, planning, treatment, and follow-up of patients seen in the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Fellows are involved in creating and managing IVF cycles, performing transvaginal oocyte retrievals, and performing embryo transfer in the second and third years. In addition, fellows perform gender-affirming laparoscopic hysterectomies. Through this experience, fellows will become proficient in advanced technologies and treatments. Clinical work will take place primarily at the Center for Reproductive Medicine, as well as nearby ambulatory clinics and Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital.

Research Experience

Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in basic science, translational, or clinical research, depending on the fellow's skills and interests. Research may be conducted on a broad range of topics, including female and male infertility, assisted reproductive technologies, reproductive surgery, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, polycystic ovary syndrome, gender-affirming hormones and fertility, menopause, reproductive genetics, and issues related to reproductive hormones.

Michigan Medicine Didactic Curriculum

The Department is home to 10 Board-certified and non-Board certified clinical and research fellowships in obstetrics and gynecology. To promote cross-specialty collaboration, all trainees take part in our Michigan Medicine Didactic Curriculum. These are ½ day educational seminars on numerous topics relevant to clinical research and academic leadership.  Topics include research design and implementation, identifying funding opportunities, manuscript timelines and preparation, how to be an effective teacher, and employment contracts. In addition, the department sponsors social events for fellows and advanced trainees across all specialties to further encourage collaboration and to help fellows build both a professional and personal network.
