Cleveland Clinic is currently recruiting its first Ob/Gyn Hospitalist fellow in Cleveland, Ohio to start August 1, 2024.
The fellowship is a two-year multidisciplinary experience. The Ob/Gyn Hospitalist fellowship program at Cleveland Clinic has all the elements of a top fellowship training program. We offer a diverse core faculty of academic specialists and subspecialists including Hospitalists and Laborists, MFM, MIGS, FPMRS, and gynecologic oncology. Additionally, we have a high obstetric and surgical volume, as well as research productivity and interaction with superior residents in the first tracking ob/gyn residency program in the country.
During the fellowship program, fellows will have the unique opportunity to obtain a Master of Business Administration or a Master of Public Health Degree from Cleveland State University. Time has been allotted in the fellow's rotation schedules to allow completion of coursework in an online or a hybrid online/in-person format, so the degree will be completed within the two years of the fellowship program.

Cleveland, an ethnically diverse, mid-sized city located on Lake Erie, features a host of cultural and recreational attractions. Downtown Cleveland is approximately two miles from the Cleveland Clinic campus.
The entire fellowship will be divided into twelve, one month rotations. During each rotation, the fellow will participate in surgical and medical experiences related to Ob/Gyn Hospitalist Medicine.
There are six different rotations, four of which will repeat throughout the fellowship. Rotations include OB Hospitalist Medicine, gynecologic surgery, and outpatient clinic continued throughout the east, west, and Main Campus blocks. The Main Campus blocks also include OB and GYN ultrasound experiences and a half-day per week of simulation education and training. The fellow will have a half-day of a continuity Ob/Gyn clinic while on the Main Campus rotation and one full-day of clinic on the east and west rotations.
The fellow will have the unique option to complete a Master’s in Public Health or a Master’s in Business Administration through Cleveland State University during the fellowship. The fellowship has built in half-day per week of educational time during the east, west and Main Campus rotations to facilitate completion of the coursework. Fellows who prefer to complete a clinical only fellowship will be expected to complete a quality project in addition to a required research project.
Additionally, in the PGY 5 year, the fellow will have a one month rotation of OB Anesthesia and one month of Medical Intensive Care. The Intensive Care experience will be continued in the PGY 6 year with a one month rotation on the Surgical Intensive Care Unit.
The clinical sites will primarily include the family maternity units at Cleveland Clinic Hillcrest and Fairview Hospitals, the Special Delivery Unit at Main Campus, outpatient clinics at the Main Campus, and inpatient GYN at Main Campus (including GYN surgery and inpatient and emergency consults). Approximately 70% of time is spent on the inpatient service and 30% on outpatient activities throughout the rotations.
We ensure that the Ob/Gyn Hospitalist Fellowship program takes advantage of core academic strengths of Cleveland Clinic by supporting our fellows in developing skills to perform and complete scholarly work including original research and quality improvement projects within obstetrics and gynecology. Fellows will be required to present at our Women’s Health Institute Grand Rounds and Research Day. Fellows may also be invited to give lectures at interdisciplinary Grand Rounds and continuing medical education (CME) conferences.
- Fellows are required to:
- Keep an educational portfolio which is a compilation of academic work and other forms of material evidence of learning progress and academic accomplishment including publications, lectures, conference materials, awards, honors, certifications, recommendations, and written evaluations.
- Formulate researchable questions and conduct patient-centered literature searches using systematic reviews and EPIC databases.
- Evaluate clinical literature applying knowledge of epidemiology, biostatistics and research study design.
- Facilitate the learning of trainees and other health care professionals.
The Ob/Gyn Hospitalist role encompasses holistic Ob/Gyn care, care for complex medical conditions, and utilization of cutting edge evidence-based therapies. The research component of the fellowship emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Ob/Gyn health concerns.
