Fellows may take inpatient and outpatient apprenticeship electives with permission of the Program Director. Electives are of 1- to 2-week duration and are taken in addition to the required inpatient clinical rotations. Depending on availability and with agreement with the responsible elective faculty member, electives are available in high-risk obstetrics, pediatric cardiology, pediatric intensive care, perinatal regional outreach, and international perinatal medicine. Prior to beginning an elective, specific goals and objectives are developed by the Program Director, fellow, and appropriate faculty.
