Research Opportunities for the Fellow


The departmentís priority for development of academicians in the Maternal-Fetal Medicine subspecialty is evident in the commitment to providing them with the most supportive environment for continuing growth in research, clinical patient care and education. The three-year fellowship includes a total of 18 months in research. During that time, the fellows do not have any clinical responsibilities and are never pulled to cover any clinical services. They are offered to enroll in the Masters of Medical Sciences and graduate with a thesis. The department is also committed to providing them with the infrastructure needed to sharpen their research skills and perform their required research project. The fellow has access to a number of faculties with well-established expertise and well-funded laboratories. These mentors are all aware of the importance of the fellowship training to our department and chairman. The fellows are also provided with the support to attend annual meetings and training workshops, such as the Intensive Molecular Biology Workshop given in the summer at Smith College. Fellows who are interested are also encouraged to continue with a Ph.D. in Cell Biology which can be obtained with one additional year over the 3 years of fellowship.

 

After completion of the initial 18 months of dedicated basic science research, the fellow will have approximately 8 hours per week in which to participate in research activities. The fellow will be allowed to participate in any laboratory that is currently collaborating with the Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine and will be encouraged to work with the clinical faculty on both prospective and retrospective clinical research. The fellow will be required to complete at least one (preferably prospective) clinical project before completing the fellowship.

 

Research meeting

 

Members of the division are committed to continuing education through participation in scientific meetings. The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston presents regular scientific meetings in all subspecialties of which Maternal Fetal Medicine is frequently a topic. Additionally, we encourage members of the division and will encourage fellows to submit abstracts to, attend and participate in meetings of several obstetrical groups and related topics including the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Society of Gynecology Investigation, Perinatology Research and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Any fellow who has an abstract accepted for presentation will be funded by the division to attend the meeting and present the abstract. We will diligently work towards developing presentation skills and the desire to produce quality research material.
