MFM Fellowship Experience & Rotation Schedules
Each fellow is given 18 months of dedicated research time within the three years, as well as a rich clinical MFM experience including:
- 12 months of Clinical MFM
- 2 months of Labor and Delivery
- 1 month of Critical Care
- 2 months of Genetics
- 1 month of Neonatology
Each fellow has one half day per week in Fellow’s Continuity Clinic throughout the three years of fellowship training. The fellow will have many opportunities to pursue basic science/translational research with the guidance of Dr. Ramani Ramchandran, Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, who will assist in their laboratory mentor selection, or a clinical/translational research program under the direction of Dr. Judith Hibbard, Vice Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Fellowship Director.
Those fellows opting to obtain a Masters in Clinical and Translational Science or a Masters in Public Health must declare this in the first year and their schedule will be adjusted to accommodate their required coursework. However, the total months on each rotation will not change. Graduate courses can easily be accommodated during any rotation, but are recommended to be heavily concentrated into the research months.
The Maternal Fetal Care Center is the MFM clinic at Froedtert Hospital and the Fetal Concerns Center of Wisconsin is the only program of its type in Wisconsin which is a cooperative effort between CHW, FH and MCW.
