Maternal Child Health Fellowship
Since 1991, the department of Family Medicine’s 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. Our fellows are prepared to organize, direct and evaluate community-oriented MCH programs as part of a multidisciplinary team.

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.

The Experience
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 at Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island.
  • 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.
