The University of Florida Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is seeking a motivated and compassionate Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialist to join our team as a full-time faculty member. Academic track (tenure or non-tenure track) and rank (Assistant/Associate/Full Professor) will be based on qualifications. The position will also include responsibilities as the Program Director for the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship. Our Maternal-Fetal Medicine clinical team consists of seven clinical faculty, three fellows, six ambulatory advanced practice providers, 12 ultrasound technicians, two perinatal nurse navigators, and one genetic counselor. Care is provided at three ambulatory offices and one hospital facility, UF Health Shands Hospital, which has been designated a Level IV maternal care verified facility by the Joint Commission’s Maternal Levels of Care Verification program.

As a perinatologist, this individual will carry out the division’s missions of patient care, education, and research.

Clinical duties may include coverage of labor and delivery activities, oversight of complex pregnancy care, perinatal consultations, perinatal ultrasound, and invasive and non-invasive fetal diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

General education responsibilities include the education and supervision of residents and MFM fellows in the fundamentals of maternal-fetal medicine, including surgical and ultrasound skills required to optimize pregnancy outcomes and provide diagnostic information to patients, as well as providing education for third-year medical students in the ObGyn clerkship and fourth-year students on the MFM elective.

As the MFM Fellowship Program Director, this individual has the responsibility, authority, and accountability for: administration and operations, teaching and scholarly activity oversight, fellow recruitment and selection, oversight of fellows, and fellows’ education in the context of patient care.
