Program Overview

The U-M Medical School Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility is a three-year program that provides fellows with the knowledge, skills, and experience vital to becoming successful leaders in the field.

Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility fellows benefit from a multidisciplinary approach that brings together the expertise of endocrinology and infertility specialists, OBGYNs, reproductive urologists, lab technicians, and research scientists. Our program is structured to provide 18 months of research experience and 18 months of clinical training (13 months of clinical training, followed by 18 months of research experience, concluding with 5 months of clinical training).

Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in elective rotations, including Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology, Comprehensive Gender Services Program, Reproductive Urology, Medical Endocrinology, and Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery.


Core Program Components

Fellows actively participate in all aspects of patient care and gain valuable and extensive experience. This includes the evaluation, planning, treatment, and follow-up of patients seen in the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Fellows are involved in creating and managing IVF cycles, performing transvaginal oocyte retrievals, and performing embryo transfer in the second and third years. In addition, fellows perform gender-affirming laparoscopic hysterectomies. Through this experience, fellows will become proficient in advanced technologies and treatments. Clinical work will take place primarily at the Center for Reproductive Medicine, as well as nearby ambulatory clinics and Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital.

Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in basic science, translational, or clinical research, depending on the fellow's skills and interests. Research may be conducted on a broad range of topics, including female and male infertility, assisted reproductive technologies, reproductive surgery, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, polycystic ovary syndrome, gender-affirming hormones and fertility, menopause, reproductive genetics, and issues related to reproductive hormones.

Fellowship Core Curriculum

The Department is home to 11 Board-certified and non-Board-certified clinical and research fellowships in obstetrics and gynecology. To promote cross-specialty collaboration, all trainees take part in our didactic curriculum. These are ½ day educational seminars on numerous topics relevant to clinical research and academic leadership.

Topics include research design and implementation, identifying funding opportunities, manuscript timelines and preparation, how to be an effective teacher and employment opportunities. In addition, the department sponsors social events for fellows and advanced trainees across all specialties to further encourage collaboration and to help fellows build both a professional and personal network.

 

Ongoing Educational Opportunities

The U-M Medical School Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is committed to the ongoing development and education of our faculty, staff, and learners. Each year, we provide over 100 CME activities for physicians and healthcare professionals to enhance learning and improve patient outcomes.
