A message from the Director

National Need While many family physicians do not choose to provide maternity care, others offer a full scope of services, encompassing pre-and post-natal care and deliveries (including Cesarean sections). For those family physicians practicing in underserved and isolated areas, the provision of maternity care may be essential.

Mission Provide primary and preventive care for women’s health care needs, with an emphasis on reproductive lifecycle needs. During this fellowship we will provide you with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to address these gender-specific health care needs.

Philosophy The lives of women will only become better when professional training imbues a holistic, comprehensive strategy for caring for women. An optimal comprehensive training program in women’s healthcare is best achieved in a robust multidisciplinary setting that nurtures excellence in educational innovation, clinical care, research endeavors, advocacy for patients, and mentorship.
