Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility
The three-year program in reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI) provides broad clinical training in reproductive medicine, offers research exposure in reproductive biology both through Women & Infants Hospital and the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility’s laboratories and those at Brown University, and helps develop teaching skills with the expectation that fellows will prepare to be a Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH), Women's Reproductive Health Research (WRHR), or Reproductive Scientist Development Program (RSDP) scholar.
The last half of the fellowship prepares fellows to apply to these programs or other National Institutes of Health (NIH) K-level mentored research programs. Women & Infants is the primary location for the fellowship. Fellows rotate through other services at Rhode Island and Hasbro Children’s hospitals.
After three years, fellows will have the requisite clinical skills, research experience, and educational training to pursue an academic faculty position, and sufficient knowledge to meet the requirements for ABOG certification of special competence in REI. As part of their training in preparation for an academic career, fellows will participate in the national reproductive medicine community as associate members in the Society of Reproductive Endocrinology, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, and the Society of Gynecologic Investigation.
