The research faculty in our department does incredible work in regards to research and how that research impacts healthcare around the world. We continue to be at the forefront of innovative breakthroughs in healthcare and, despite drastic budget cuts in the past several years at the federal agency level, we continue to be at the top of the NIH funding lists for Obstetrics and Gynecology departments around the country.

Each fellow will have 12 dedicated research months over the 3-year fellowship distributed into 3-6 month segments in each academic year.  Six additional elective months can also be used for research.  During research, 10% of time can be allocated for hands-on ultrasound training with a sonographer and is primarily targeted for trainees at the PGYI-II level.
