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 6 months of additional training requirement in Medical Genetics and MFM, and up to 18 months of clinical and/or laboratory-based research training in MFM-Genetics. Trainees who have successfully completed this training program are eligible for examination leading to board certifications of ABOG in MFM and ABMGG in Clinical Genetics

Applications will be reviewed by faculty members from both MFM and Medical Genetics training programs.
