The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix and Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix provides comprehensive care for pregnant patients in a manner that promotes diversity, community, collaboration, integrity, innovation, excellence and leadership.
Our comprehensive curriculum will encompass all facets of maternal-fetal medicine and will include weekly didactics, monthly fetal boards, neonatal/pediatric subspecialty conferences and quarterly journal clubs. Rotations include inpatient services and outpatient clinic, as well as ICU rotations in critical care and the NICU.
