Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Fellowship

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) Fellowship at the University of Miami/Jackson Health System is to train outstanding leaders in REI with knowledge and skills to contribute as clinicians, researchers, educators, and advocates. We strive to create a learning environment that is intellectually stimulating, inclusive, and collegial where the trainee develops personally, as well as professionally, in alignment with the University’s mission of transforming lives through education, research, innovation, and service.

The University of Miami/Jackson Health System REI Fellowship program offers interdisciplinary clinical and research training in all aspects of the subspecialty. The depth and breadth of clinical experience and the expertise of the faculty in clinical and basic research attracts patients with clinical issues across the spectrum of REI. In addition, the state-of-the-art equipment and facilities available to the trainees within the Division, the Department and Institution ensures that our trainees are well prepared to meet the rigorous requirements for board certification by the ABOG Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and for professional excellence in their chosen career path. We aim to recruit the most promising Ob/Gyn residency graduates from around the United States, to educate and train them over a period of 3 years with a view to ensuring that each fellow graduates as a highly competent REI practitioner, and to prepare them for future careers in academic medicine, research, and/or community- based practice. As part of their training, the overarching goal of our fellowship is to provide fellows with exposure to the breadth and depth of reproductive endocrinology and infertility subspecialty, ranging from issues pertaining to adolescent population, reproductive age women, to endocrine concerns unique to the perimenopausal and postmenopausal women, while ensuring that the trainees gain exposure to the evolving technologies pertinent to the care of infertile couples (female and male issues). We strive to achieve these objectives within the context of a secure and nurturing learning environment that promotes excellence in practice. The training program utilizes a combination of didactic lectures, chapter reviews, journal clubs, case conferences, and research conferences to achieve this objective.

Director’s Welcome

Our academic environment, clinical and research faculty, diverse patient population and the breadth of clinical experiences will provide graduating fellows with a comprehensive foundation of clinical and research experience necessary to launch a successful career in Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility (REI).

Our training program is organized so graduates will meet ACGME, ABOG and subspecialty educational objectives and competencies for board certification and successful practice in REI. The program is based within the University of Miami Hospital & Clinics as well as in Jackson Memorial Hospital, the primary teaching affiliate of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and the largest tertiary care referral center in South Florida and the surrounding domestic and international regions. Patients from all over the world come to South Florida, and the City of Miami, in particular, for care, so fellows develop humanistic skills to care for women of all races, ethnicities, nationalities and creeds. These experiences truly allow the fellow to learn what it means to provide personalized care.

Additionally, our faculty are diverse, well-published and engaged. Mentorship for trainees is paramount, and we get no greater satisfaction than seeing our fellows succeed. Our program reflects a comprehensive approach to clinical care and to sending our graduates out confident that they will be excellent, compassionate and prolific REI specialists. We are committed to providing them an outstanding training program resulting in future leaders in our field.

Finally, we strive to create a positive working environment both inside and outside the hospital to help our fellows learn as much as they can while enjoying their time here with us. We are so fortunate to live and work in beautiful Miami which provides us with a multitude of options for time spent outside of the workplace. Outdoor recreational activities are available year-round and Miami is a thriving city with multicultural influences shaping the art, food and music scenes.
