Education & Training


Our division conducts more than 5500 distinctive anatomic evaluations annually and manages over 450 cases involving fetal structural malformations. Our close proximity to UH Rainbow Babies & Children's enables seamless access to a comprehensive range of pediatric specialties, fostering collaboration facilitated by our weekly multi-disciplinary fetal care clinic and bi-monthly fetal boards.


Fellows will participate in two genetic rotations with opportunities for additional elective experiences. Our faculty comprises two experts double-boarded in obstetrics and genetics, notably including Dr. Marta Kolthoff, who serves as the director of our genetics program. Previous graduates of our integrated program have received successful training in CVS when pursuing such specialized education.

Fetal Intervention

Our fetal intervention program provides a range of services, including placental laser ablation for TTTS, intrauterine transfusion, and various other procedures. Distinguished among them is our Congenital Cardiac Collaborative, in partnership with Nationwide Children's Hospital, which stands out as one of the nation's few programs offering intrauterine balloon valvuloplasty. This pioneering initiative is spearheaded by Dr. Ellie Ragesdale.

Clinical Obstetrics

Our Labor and Delivery unit handles over 3500 deliveries each year, drawing from five regional units across Northeast Ohio. Fellows participate in rotations within continuity clinics located in three of our outpatient offices. Led by Dr. Christopher Nau, our Diabetes in Pregnancy Program features a group care model, nutrition programs through an on-site educational kitchen, and collaboration with a neighboring grocery store to help address food insecurity.
