The Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility Fellowship


The Reproductive Endocrine Fellowship at New Jersey Medical School combines an active clinical practice with the opportunity to perform high-caliber basic or clinical research.  The research component includes support from both industry and NIH grants for basic and clinical research.  These targeted investigators offer the Fellow the chance for participation in and management of a large variety of research protocols. 

A large core laboratory is in operation within the Division, encompassing all reproductive hormone immunoassays and ELISAs, molecular biology, a sophisticated tissue and organ culture facility and a variety of technical equipment suitable for biomedical research.

The clinical base of the Fellowship is University Reproductive Associates (URA), a free-standing patient care facility located in suburban Bergen County, through which approximately 300 IVF cycles and 500 gonadotropin or clomiphene IUI cycles are managed annually by Fellows and staff.  Patients suitable for clinical research are recruited from URA.

A key component at the program is a sincere commitment to protected research time, allowing the Fellow to finish with a published thesis project and the skills to maintain a productive ongoing research career.  To this end, the entire first year is protected for research (and the two graduate level courses).  Years two and three are divided 50/50 between research and clinical time, with rotations through our own busy practice, Clinical Genetics, Pediatric Endocrinology and Male Infertility at Hackensack Medical Center and our Newark clinics for REI and Medical Endocrinology.

Fellows are encouraged to take their General OB/GYN Board exams during Fellowship, and given free time and support to attend the NIH and SREI conferences in Colorado.  Thus, the overall scope and versatility of both research and clinical venues remain the most attractive features of New Jersey Medical School's REI Fellowship Program.
