University of Tennessee Nashville Family Medicine Residency Program

Obstetrics Fellowship

As a part of the continued growth and expansion of our program, the UT-Nashville Family Medicine Residency Program is adding a one-year fellowship in obstetrics beginning in the summer of 2019. The fellow will help oversee the care of prenatal patients at the Ascension Medical Group Saint Thomas (Saint Louise Clinic) (where the family medicine residency clinic is located) and will participate in vaginal and cesarean deliveries at Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford, where approximately 3000 babies are born each year. The fellowship will focus on preparing the selected family physician for practicing family medicine obstetrics by achieving competency in normal vaginal births, operative vaginal (vacuum-assisted) and abdominal (cesarean) deliveries, prenatal care (including at risk pregnancies), standard obstetric ultrasound, and office gynecologic procedures.

Why I Chose UT-Murfreesboro:
I am from Texas but grew up coming to Tennessee to visit family during the summer. I have always loved the Nashville area but did not want to live in such a big city. When I saw there was a Family Medicine program in Murfreesboro I decided to come spend a month working as a student and absolutely loved my experience. I am excited to now be a part of a new and growing program in Rutherford County. The program is unopposed and the community is very excited to have residents in their healthcare system. All of the faculty are excited to teach and build a great residency, and we are ready to continue to develop what the first class of residents started last year.
