The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is very proud to announce the addition of a fellowship in Maternal-Fetal Medicine to our program for the 2021-22 academic year. The three-year fellowship is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology (ABOG).
Our program is designed to train fellows with excellence in inpatient and outpatient clinical skills, effective interdisciplinary consultation communication, exceptional teaching, and relevant clinical research and education. With more than 4,300 deliveries in the medical center per year and consultation to surrounding counties and states, our program provides extensive learning opportunities in the management of both medical and surgical complications of pregnancy. Fellows will also train in clinical research as they prepare for a career in academic medicine or private practice.
Upon completion of training, fellows are prepared to provide comprehensive maternal and fetal care, genetic screening and counseling, advanced ultrasound, full spectrum of intrapartum care, scientific thought, and critical review of the literature.
UT Medical Center is the region’s only academic medical center. The Graduate School of Medicine is comprised of 10 academic departments with over 400 full-time and volunteer teaching physicians and researchers. There are over 200 residents and fellows training on campus in 15 ACGME accredited specialty and subspecialty programs; and 16 residents training in ADA accredited general dentistry and AAOMS accredited oral and maxillofacial surgery programs.
The goal of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is to provide a well-rounded experience in all facets of OB/GYN education for each resident and fellow. The residency program of 16 residents promotes abundant clinical opportunities in obstetrics, gynecology, and the subspecialties. With the addition of one fellow per year, the program size fosters positive interaction with faculty and camaraderie amongst residents and fellows. Fellows enhance resident education by providing oversight and teaching for low-risk obstetric patients, while gaining expertise in advanced pregnancy management.
The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division and fellows are responsible for providing primary consultation and/or acceptance of care for pregnant patients with medical, surgical, or fetal complications. We serve an over 40-county catchment area between four states; Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Virginia.
In addition to maternal-fetal medicine, the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology houses all other subspecialties - reproductive endocrinology and infertility, urogynecology, and gynecologic oncology. The department is also fortunate to have an experienced OB/GYN Hospitalists group to help manage our busy labor and delivery suite.
The Center for Women and Infants is one of the medical center’s seven Centers of Excellence. Each center is dedicated to providing comprehensive and collaborative care to patients. It brings together expertise in clinical care, teaching, and research. Patients receive exceptional patient-centered care, premier technology, and extensive patient/community education.
UT Medical Center is also designated as a Regional Perinatal Center. Regional Perinatal Centers provide a statewide system of high-risk maternal and infant care. We offer the highest acuity maternal care (Level IV obstetric care), high-risk transportation, and are fortunate to have a 67-bed, all private room Level III NICU.

Simulation is the imitation of real-life experience including the use of task and virtual reality trainers, as well as standardized patients to refine technical and clinical skills of healthcare professionals. At the UT Center for Advanced Medical Simulation, the goal is continual improvement in quality of patient care and safety through education, practice, and assessment. Simulation can replicate almost any diagnostic or therapeutic situation, from simple IV insertions using low-fidelity task technology to complicated surgeries using high-fidelity, computerized manikins or virtual reality modules.
