The Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) Program at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University was approved by the ACGME on February 13, 2017. This is a three-year fellowship with one fellow position per year and is designed to prepare trainees for academic medicine.
Our comprehensive training includes clinical REI and Genetics as well as structured training in basic laboratory and clinical research, direct teaching experience, and the opportunity to pursue specific academic interests. In addition to standard REI, fellows will have extensive hands-on training of genetics and male exams, pubertal disorders, and reproductive developmental disorders with the opportunity to present clinical and research cases at our weekly Translational REI and Genetics conference. The program is an integral part of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, chaired by Michael P. Diamond, MD.
