The strengths of this program include the large clinical volume that encompasses the full spectrum of maternal and fetal diagnosis and management. The referral base includes the physicians and hospitals within the greater Tampa Bay area and extends throughout most of the central western Florida region. Our hospital partner is Tampa General Hospital which is a nationally ranked center for multiple medical subspecialties. There is a tertiary care labor and delivery suite, an 82 bed level IV NICU, and a level I trauma center. Tampa General Hospital serves as the academic medical center for the Greater Tampa Bay area, which has a population of 2.5 million people.
The fellows' clinical experience will allow them to provide care and consultative services regarding pregnancy specific complications, maternal pre-existing medical conditions, fetal diagnosis and fetal therapy. Upon completion of their diverse and enriched experience, the fellows will be equipped to provide care and consultative services within the field of MFM.
