Program Description

The Army's Family Medicine Obstetrics (FMOB) Fellowship trains two qualified family physicians per year in the management of complicated pregnancies and operative obstetrics in order to subsequently augment residency faculty and/or Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB-GYN) staff in underserved locations throughout the military. The program is a 1-year labor-and-delivery-intensive fellowship with opportunities to work with Maternal Fetal Medicine, General OB-GYN, Neonatology, and Family Medicine Obstetrics faculty and to serve as junior faculty to the Family Medicine Residency Program. Fellows can be expected to gain skills in Cesarean delivery, operative vaginal delivery, Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP), dilation and curettage, and management of maternal disease in pregnancy to include hypertension, pre-eclampsia, diabetes, and preterm labor.

The program is in a classically high-volume obstetrics environment with a full complement of FMOB and OB-GYN staff providing fellows with excellent individual learning opportunities. Additionally, co-location with the CRDAMC Family Medicine Residency provides strong faculty development opportunities and teaching experience for fellows to serve as adjunct faculty within the residency, which allows them to maintain full scope practice in adult inpatient medicine and clinic procedures as well as other non-obstetric Family Medicine (FM) skills.
