Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship
Geisinger’s Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship program immerses you in a high-volume practice, where you’ll see a diverse patient population — and we have a perfect record for board certification.
Helping patients have successful pregnancies and providing healthy starts for newborns is one of the most rewarding paths a physician can follow.
If you’d like to join a team that’s committed to providing the best, most compassionate clinical care — and dedicated to training the next generation of specialists in a collegial, collaborative atmosphere — Geisinger’s three-year Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship could be a good fit for you.
The Geisinger Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) Division includes six fellowship-trained, board-certified faculty perinatologists and a team of MFM nurse practitioners, perinatal ultrasonographers and dedicated genetic counselors and nursing and support staff.
From day one, we’ll treat you as a valued colleague and nurture your journey through our ACGME-accredited program, which has been training maternal-fetal medicine specialists since 2006. So far, our graduates have a 100% MFM oral and written board pass rate, and we’ll make sure you’re prepared for success, too.
As our Maternal-Fetal Medicine program fellow, you’ll be prepared to excel in a clinical setting and to conduct research that will support the advancement of this constantly evolving, challenging field.
Your training will be immersive and broad. Geisinger’s Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division, located in a region with rural communities and two urban centers, sees a large, diverse patient population.
Our two primary outpatient offices are in Danville and Forty Fort, Pa. Both sites feature on-site antenatal testing units. And each year, we perform more than 3,500 Level II fetal anatomy assessments and over 5,000 fetal growth assessments.
You’ll also train at Geisinger Medical Center, our flagship hospital and research center, where each year we perform about 1,800 deliveries, many of which are high-acuity perinatal transfers. And you’ll work with our team at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, where we also deliver about 1,800 babies each year.
The Geisinger system also includes:
- A state-of-the-art birthing center at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, Pa.
- A Level IV NICU in Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital at Geisinger Medical Center
- A Level III NICU at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center
If you’re looking for a maternal-fetal medicine fellowship that will prepare you for leadership in the field, encourage you as a lifelong learner and introduce you to colleagues who will serve as partners during and long after your training, apply to join us.
