Wake Forest School of Medicine has been training fellows in the subspecialty of maternal fetal medicine (MFM) since the 1970s, making it one of the longest-standing MFM fellowship programs in the country.

We provide a collaborative atmosphere where each individual is a learner as well as a teacher. As the only academic maternal fetal medicine practice in the western half of North Carolina with a MFM Fellowship program, we serve a large geographic area, which includes North Carolina, a significant part of western Virginia, the southern part of West Virginia and parts of Tennessee.

We foster close mentoring relationships and prepare fellows for all aspects of a professional career in maternal fetal medicine. Our fellows have pursued clinical practice around the country in both academic and private settings.

Fellows are encouraged to pursue their passions while working with mentors to enhance their clinical skills and while gaining valuable educational and research experience.

Why Train at Wake Forest?

As a fellow, you’ll gain confidence in common and rare obstetric and maternal-fetal medicine-related procedures and clinical scenarios through a variety of simulations and task trainers developed by Drs. Brost and Nitsche.

Our fellows gain enough experience in performing and teaching these procedures that they routinely serve as workshop faculty for national postgraduate courses in ultrasound-guided needle procedures, even in the first year of their fellowship.
