Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Fellowship
The Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) Fellowship Program is a three-year program designed to prepare fellows for a career in academic medicine. The ACGME-accredited program is approved for three fellows.
In 1974 – a year after the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology created the subspecialty of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) – the UT Southwestern REI Fellowship Program was begun by Department Chairman Paul C. MacDonald, M.D. Since 1985, the program has been led by Bruce R. Carr, M.D., who completed his REI Fellowship here in 1979.
The Fellowship Program is well-rounded and includes extensive clinical experience as well as opportunities for basic and clinical research.
The UT Southwestern REI Fellowship Program is complemented by a Division Faculty that includes many graduates of this very Program as well as a certified high-complexity laboratory director. Faculty members lead a successful infertility service and are active in basic science research.
The strength of the Program can be measured in the results. Since 1985, all of the fellows who trained in our Program have successfully passed their written REI board examinations the first time, and 98 percent have passed their oral boards on the first try.
Clinical experience is enhanced with rotations in UT Southwestern’s Fertility and Advanced Reproductive Medicine Program, and Parkland Health & Hospital System.
Outpatient surgery is available at UT Southwestern’s Outpatient Building and the Simmons Ambulatory Surgical Center at Parkland. Inpatient care is provided at William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital and Parkland Memorial Hospital.
