The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship


Research endeavors in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology are robust. The Department and Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine currently have over 20 IRB-approved research projects and consistently has high rates of project progression from concept to study protocol to meeting presentation and publication. The division has a dedicated, full-time research nurse who works in collaboration with UT Medical Center’s Office of Clinical Trials. Departmental research is organized into research “pods” and meet on an ongoing basis.

Current research topics within our division include:

Fellows are given both formal and informal opportunities for scholarly activities as part of their research training. Given our close proximity to the University of Tennessee campus, fellows can take advantage of educational courses in biostatistics, epidemiology, and research design.

Two options for basic course work:

The University of Tennessee also offers two exciting programs available to our fellows. A Graduate Certificate in Health Policy is available through the College of Nursing in collaboration with the Department of Public Health and the College of Law. This interdisciplinary graduate certificate program prepares leaders, practitioners, researchers, and educators to be active in various policymaking activities.* In addition, the Haslam College of Business offers a 1-year Physician Executive MBA program. The nationally-ranked program, which runs from January to December, is designed exclusively for physicians seeking management and business skills to lead healthcare organizations.*

*Fellows choosing to pursue a Master of Public Health, Graduate Certificate in Health Policy, or Executive MBA are responsible for the cost beyond the two courses provided by the fellowship program. However, financial assistance is available.
