Welcome to the University of Toronto Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM)!

We are a distributed Division, primarily located at our three major teaching hospitals: Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (SHSC), St. Michael's Hospital (SMH), Mount Sinai Hospital-University Health Network (MSH-UHN). Our partners also include a number of community hospitals and the Hospital for Sick Children, among others. Our Division embraces a wide array of clinician-educators, clinician-investigators, clinician-scientists, and clinician-epidemiologists, offering a wide variety of research opportunities across all levels of training.

Along with the wider Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, the MFM Division and other maternity care providers, we form a network that contributes to more than 30,000 deliveries each year. We provide consultative services for complicated pregnancies throughout the GTA and, in some instances, across the country in such areas as fetal therapy. We are a highly productive division in terms of education, research and administrative services within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Toronto. 

We have been involved in building a collaborative network with MFM colleagues into the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). It is hoped that this network will provide an academic U of T vision of research, quality improvement and strategic recruitment of physicians to better deliver high-quality MFM services to the over 65,000 pregnant women in the GTA every year.

Our Fellowship Program continues to flourish under the leadership of Dr. Marie Czikk and our graduates have in many cases become leaders in care, research and education, following return to their own centres.

Under the leadership of Dr. Nan Okun we have also expanded our collaboration with MFM training and service provision at our partner institution, Moi University, Eldoret, Kenya. 

Upcoming years promise to be exciting and productive as we further embark on initiatives to capitalize on the potential that a strong GTA-wide MFM network can deliver to the University, the GTA region, nationally, and internationally, with the guidance of our new Chair, Dr. Kellie Murphy.
