Maternal-Fetal Medicine

Our Program

The fellowship at the University of Hawaii combines exceptional training for future maternal-fetal medicine specialists in clinical practice and in academic medicine. The fellows will acquire knowledge of the basic and clinical facets of perinatal medicine and develop skills for the conduct of clinical and/or basic research related to our sub-specialty.

Fellows will gain an extensive knowledge base and develop wide experiences in the management of common and unusual obstetrical and medical complications, including those conditions unique to Hawaii and the Pacific Rim. This will enable them to both manage such patients and function as a consultant for obstetricians requesting input.

In addition, the fellows will have the option to complete a Master of Science Degree in Clinical Research administered through the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa. Upon completion of the program, MFM fellows will be able to effectively conduct and analyze new research and decide how to apply new knowledge. Additionally, fellows will be able to serve as an expert in his/her community, advising others in the application of new knowledge. We anticipate they will become clinician-researchers and advance medical knowledge in the MFM discipline.
