Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship

The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship Training Program at Johns Hopkins is a clinical and research-oriented fellowship designed to provide advanced education and training in the care of the pregnant patient and her fetus, prenatal diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, clinical and didactic teaching skills, and developing research skills. Our academic environment, faculty educators, case acuity, diversity and volume of complicated pregnancies provide a strong foundation for our comprehensive fellowship training program in maternal-fetal medicine.

Deadlines for 2023

The application deadline for 2023 is currently May 1, 2023.

We will send invitations to select applicants for interviews on May 15, 2023. We will only offer one invitation for each interview slot we have; thus, we will maintain a waiting list of highly qualified applicants. We ask that anyone who accepts an interview please notify us promptly if their plans change so that we can offer their spot to another applicant.

All interviews will be conducted via live video link. There will be no in-person events planned in Baltimore. Additional information will be shared as we get closer to our interview day.
