Combined Medical Genetics and Maternal Fetal Medicine

Since 2005, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Maternal Fetal Medicine Program in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Institute of Genetic Medicine have jointly offered a 4 year fellowship program for combined training in MFM and medical genetics. Physicians who completed an accredited residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology and who wish to participate in an accredited Maternal and Fetal Medicine (MFM) fellowship, may, with the approval of both programs, integrate the MFM fellowship with a residency in an accredited Medical Genetics residency program.

This combined fellowship training will be completed at Johns Hopkins and its affiliated hospitals. Fellows will spend their first full year as residents in medical genetics at Johns Hopkins. During the second year, fellows will complete their clinical training in maternal fetal medicine at Johns Hopkins. During the third and fourth years, fellows will complete additional 6 months of clinical genetics training followed by an 18 months of clinical and/or laboratory-based research in medical genetics and MFM-genetics.

Applicants interested in this combined training pathway should submit their application through ERAS. Applications will be reviewed by faculty members from both MFM and Medical Genetics training programs. Selected applicants will be invited for an interview Additional information on Board requirements for combined training in MFM and medical genetics can be found at ABOG and ABMG websites.
