Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship

The Medical University Hospital is a tertiary care perinatal center servicing the lower third of South Carolina including the entire coastal region. We currently deliver approximately 2800 babies annually. Approximately 60 percent of these patients are considered high-risk because of medical or obstetrical complications. Our ambulatory practice includes consultative services and ongoing prenatal care for high-risk pregnancies. Our state-of-the-art AIUM certified prenatal diagnostic center (The Prenatal Wellness Center) performs over 12,000 ultrasounds annually. We have three genetic counselors on site. We offer amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling, Doppler studies, and cordocentesis for prenatal diagnosis.

Our program is accredited by the ACGME and approved for one fellow at each level. The fellows are assigned to a total of 15 months of clinical responsibility, 3 months of elective rotations, and 18 months are protected for research and to pursue a graduate degree. Fellows also participate in the educational conferences of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, case conferences, research meetings, and a didactic seminar series designed specifically for the fellows.

If you are interested in applying to our fellowship program, please complete an application through the Electronic Residency Application Service ERAS before the May 31 deadline. All completed applications will be reviewed to determine your candidacy for a personal interview.
