The Geisinger Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) Division features eight fellowship-trained, board certified faculty perinatologists, and a team of MFM nurse practitioners, perinatal ultrasonographers, dedicated genetic counselors, nursing and support staff. Together, we ensure a quality education and training of our fellows. The MFM Division sees an ample volume of patients to support fellowship training and research. Our two primary outpatient office locations are in Danville and Forty Fort, Pa. Each site has an onsite antenatal testing unit. We perform over 3,500 Level II fetal anatomy assessments and over 5,000 fetal growth assessments between these two sites annually. There are approximately 1,800 deliveries annually at Geisinger Medical Center (GMC), a large portion of which are high-acuity perinatal transfers (approximately 200 patients annually); and approximately another 1,800 deliveries at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center (GWV).
We have had a successful American Osteopathic Board (AOA) accredited MFM fellowship since 2006 and transitioned to Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accreditation in 2017. Thus far, our graduates have a 100% MFM oral and written board pass rate. Our fellowship graduates have gone on to pursue careers in academic medicine and in private practice across the country.
The goal of the Geisinger MFM Fellowship is to:
- Graduate clinically accomplished, compassionate, empathetic MFM physicians who are facile with the variety of clinical challenges that an MFM faces, experts in the medical management of patients and comprehensive in their approach to patient care.
- Foster a culture of scholarship that fellows will embed into their practice as attendings.
- Focus on continuous quality improvement and patient safety initiatives.
- Ensure fellows are critically able to assess and apply evidence-based guidelines to patient care.
- Maintain a culture of wellness where fellow support, camaraderie and mentorship are top priorities.
