Fellowship Training Program in Maternal-Fetal Medicine

Program Director: Sandy Ramos, MD

The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship Training Program focuses on providing State-of-the-Art care for High-Risk pregnancy and has a strong emphasis on training in basic science and clinical research.

The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship Program at University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine is approved for three fellows in any three-year cycle. This fellowship provides a broad base in the practice of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, incorporating both clinical and basic science elements, and is focused on preparing graduates for careers in academic medicine.

The mission of the UCSD Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship program is to produce physicians who provide innovative, compassionate, culturally competent, and comprehensive health care for women. This is accomplished through promoting lifelong learning, research, and clinical care of diverse patients within a variety of settings.

The program aims to recruit a diverse group of ObGyn residency graduates.  The educational objective is to educate and train, over a period of three years, fellow graduates that will become highly competent MFM physicians and leaders in the field.
