Maternal Child Health Fellowship
Since 1991, the Maternal Child Health (MCH) Fellowship has trained clinical leaders in family-centered MCH care who provide coordinated and comprehensive services to vulnerable and underserved populations. While learning to organize, direct and evaluate community-oriented MCH programs as part of a multidisciplinary team, the fellows serve as junior attendings in the department of Family Medicine.
Through partnerships with three local outpatient health clinical sites, we are working to restructure health-care delivery systems for women and children in the surrounding underserved communities.
This one or two year program gives each fellow the opportunity to:
- Coordinate outpatient prenatal care for their respective health site part of a multidisciplinary team using a case management approach.
- Coordinate inpatient labor & delivery, postpartum and nursery care.
- Obtain extensive experience with high-risk and complicated obstetrics including procedural (prenatal ultrasound) and operative (Caesarean section, tubal ligation, D&C) skills.
- Lead the MCH service on designated days, running morning rounds for residents and medical students.
- Participate in weekly fellowship seminars focused on complicated medical illness during pregnancy and on skills needed to organize special services for underserved populations and components of a community-based health center.
- Pursue a Master’s degree in Public Health at BrownUniversity (two-year only).
- Prepare and academic project geared toward publication on a topic of their choice.
