The Fellowship Program in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine was initiated in 2003. Currently, one fellowship position is filled per calendar year. This three-year fellowship is roughly divided into two 18-month segments.
The first year of the program consists primarily of clinical training. Trainees are provided the opportunity to master all of the clinical teaching goals as outlined by the Board in both the clinical and operating room settings. The unit also has a busy and successful in vitro fertilization program, which carries out approximately 1300 oocyte retrievals per year. Fellowship applicants are encouraged to view our summary statistics on the SART page of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. Fellows return to the clinical setting for their final six months of training where they also rotate with urology, medical genetics, medical endocrinology and pediatric endocrinology.
The second eighteen months of the fellowship, trainees spend most of their time working in one or more of a number of basic science settings on the medical school campus in Chicago. In some cases, the trainee may also find opportunities for basic science training on the main Northwestern campus in Evanston.
