This training track is designed for candidates who plan to pursue an academic career in prenatal medicine, and who have a goal of establishing independently funded research careers.
The fellow will be immersed in clinical prenatal medicine with a specific focus on the developing brain. The fellow will receive training in state-of-the-art prenatal diagnostic techniques including prenatal ultrasound and MRI, as well as bedside training in the evaluation and management of infants undergoing complicated transition from the prenatal environment.
The one-year fellowship track will focus on this in-depth clinical experience. In addition to the above clinical training, the two-year clinical-research fellowship track will include intensive training in basic research methodology and the application and interpretation of specialized prenatal MRI diagnostic, neuromonitoring and research tools. The trainee will then develop a research protocol with oversight and support from a dedicated mentor.
In the second year of fellowship, the fellow will focus primarily on her/his research study, publications and developing the platform for grant applications that lead to an independent research career.

Our goal is to hire trainees who have completed specialty training in any discipline related to prenatal pediatrics. Candidates must demonstrate a strong interest in prenatal and transitional medicine. Candidates with a strong clinical research background in the area of prenatal/neonatal medicine are preferred. Preference will be given to candidates identified by their primary specialty program directors as likely to assume a position in prenatal and transitional medicine at their home institution.
Eligibility criteria for both fellowship tracks include completion of residency, fellowship or equivalent training in primary subspecialty, and licensure to practice medicine in the U.S.
Applicants should send their curriculum vitae and a letter outlining career goals/research plans to:
