The Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center offers an American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology approved three year fellowship program in Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility. This program provides advanced education in Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility for the Board-certified or Board-eligible Obstetrician-Gynecologist. The Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center provide a unique opportunity for fellows to be trained in both research and clinical Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility. In the first year the fellows spend 70% of their time on clinical Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility training, 20% of their time doing research, and 10% of their time on efforts not related to Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility. In the second year the fellows spend 10% of their time on clinical Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility training, 80% of their time on research, and 10% of their time on other efforts. In the third year the fellows spend 50% of their time doing research, 40% of their time doing clinical Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility training, and 10% on other efforts. During the course of the fellowship the fellows are expected to achieve all goals outlined in the ABOG Guide to Learning Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI), to assume progressive responsibility for REI patients, and to be fully capable of independent clinical and research pursuits. The program provides a basis for an academic career in Obstetrics & Gynecology and Women's Health founded in research and teaching while affording strong clinical exposure in Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Montefiore Medical Center are institutions which pride themselves on excellence, and are exceptionally well endowed with extramural funding. The rich assortment of available faculty in the basic sciences at AECOM and the clinical sciences at MMC assure the fellows the opportunity to avail themselves fully of the spectrum of pathways of investigation in the field of REI. The presence of a high quality, high volume clinical facility guarantees adequate exposure of all fellows to all aspects of the subspecialty.
