“A prominent national meeting featuring so many faculty members from one hospital including experienced researchers and trainees is a true testament to our commitment of developing our physicians throughout their career,” said Maureen G. Phipps, MD, MPH, chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island and Care New England, chair and Chace-Joukowsky professor in the department of obstetrics & gynecology and assistant dean for teaching and research in women's health at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, and professor of epidemiology at the Brown University School of Public Health. “The presentations showcased by this diverse group of experts are a testament to the MFM division at Women & Infants and the leading work they contribute to the overall field of maternal-fetal medicine, in addition to their premier clinical practice.”
The Society was established in 1977 to give Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) physicians and scientists a place to share knowledge, research and clinical best practices in order to improve care for moms and babies. Maternal-fetal medicine physicians are obstetricians with additional training in the area of high-risk, complicated pregnancies. We specialize in treating the un-routine. Because of our additional training, we are involved in the latest advancements in maternal and fetal care. Each year at The Pregnancy Meeting, more than 2,000 MFM physicians and researchers gather to share new clinical strategies and research.
