Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility Fellowship Programs

The Johns Hopkins REI Fellowship program is proud to offer two ACGME approved fellowship programs: the REI Fellowship Program and the REI-Medical Genetics Combined Fellowship training program. Our fellowship programs seek to provide a balanced clinical, surgical and research training experience to prepare excellent candidates for a successful academic career in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. 

About Our Programs

While there are many things that set this program apart, it is the diversity in clinical, surgical and research training that distinguishes our fellowship programs. At the forefront of women's health care, reproductive endocrinologists at Hopkins are committed to providing clinically excellent, evidence-based and compassionate patient care. Members of our reproductive service not only manage infertility, but have a robust reproductive endocrinology practice, and a well-established onco-fertility preservation program. Our REI surgeons are renowned for performing complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. For candidates with a special interest in complex reproductive surgery, we are a pilot site for the Society for Reproductive Surgery (SRS) Surgical Scholars Track, which allows for additional surgical experience through partnership with minimally-invasive GYN surgery and gynecologic-oncology. Lastly, as it relates to diversity in research experience, our fellows will gain training in both clinical and basic science research through mentorship by our many NIH funded faculty and partnership with the Women’s Health Research Division, under the leadership of Dr. James Segars. Through these avenues, graduates from the Johns Hopkins REI Fellowship programs will have comprehensive training and the tools that they need to be leaders in the field of REI.

REI/Genetics Training Program

The field of REI is quickly changing thanks to rapid advancements in reproductive genetic technologies. As the underpinnings of the genetics basis of disease, including infertility, are better understood, there is a great need for REI physicians to have a deeper understanding of genetic principles. To meet this need, we are pleased to offer a unique, 4 year-ACGME approved, combined REI-Medical Genetics fellowship training program. Through partnership with the Department of Genetic Medicine, our fellows will gain in-depth training in areas of genomics, developmental genetics, biochemical genetics, population genetics, computational biology, and the genetics of complex disease.
