UW Obstetrics and Gynecology
Discover MFM Fellowship. Higher Standards.

The MFM Fellowship Program at the UW Madison School of Medicine and Public Health is an ABOG-approved, three-year fellowship training program designed to provide trainees with strong clinical skills in all areas of MFM and to offer a substantiative research experience. Fellows are expected to do a bench and / or translational research project during their fellowship; however, prior experience is not necessary. Our fellows will generally select an academic career and will have the option to pursue additional graduate work at the UW towards a doctoral degree (PhD), as junior faculty in the Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) Division, after completion of the fellowship.

Human Placenta Project

Dr. Dinesh Shah, along with other physicians at University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, have been awarded a 4-year $4 million grant to study and develop imaging techniques to identify pregnancy problems at a very early stage.

This grant is a part of the Human Placenta Project, funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The project’s goal is to increase the understanding of the placenta’s structure, function, and development across pregnancy.

The research team will use cutting-edge magnetic resonance imaging techniques to measure early predictors of complications in pregnancies. This project is the first of its kind to study the placenta in real time. This will allow clinicians to visualize diseases or abnormalities of pregnancy at very early stages.

This is one of the many exciting research opportunities the University of Wisconsin has to offer fellows in our program.
