This fellowship program offers:
- Well-rounded training: Fellows learn comprehensive fetal care, from diagnosis and prenatal counseling to intervention and postnatal follow-up. Fellows gain extensive experience in medical decision-making by working with colleagues to identify which patients are candidates for fetal intervention. The fellow will work with specialists in fetal intervention across the disciplines of maternal-fetal medicine, radiology, neonatology, neurosurgery, cardiology, genetics, and anesthesiology.
- Excellent mix of clinical and research opportunities: During this 1-year program, fellows spend 6 months in clinic and 6 months on clinical research, making connections between their research interests and their cases. Fellows are frequent presenters at conferences, gaining experience in sharing their work.
- Advanced techniques: As part of clinical training at U-M, fellows learn advanced procedures, including surgical treatment of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) and management of infants on ECMO.
