Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Fellowship Training Program

NYU Langone Health is proud to offer an ACGME Accredited fellowship program in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. The Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) Fellowship is directed by Frederick Licciardi, MD and Associate Program Director, Mary Elizabeth Fino, MD.

The REI Fellowship Program is three-year training program that leads to board certification in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG). One fellow is accepted per year.

Fellowship at NYU Langone Health provides clinical training in reproductive endocrinology, reproductive surgery, assisted reproductive technology, medical endocrinology, embryology, andrology, and genetics. In addition to robust exposure to treatment modalities of infertility at the NYU Langone Fertility Center (NYULFC), the program provides ample guided and progressive exposure to the development of basic and/or clinical research projects in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. The fellowship was approved in 2001. To date, all previous graduates of the NYULMC REI fellowship are practicing in the field of clinical reproductive medicine and eligible candidates have passed their REI boards. The fellowship is supported by a strong faculty with a wide range of clinical and research interests. Requirements of the fellowship are met through a variety of scheduled activities ensuring a significant exposure to the intricacies of the specialty.

The mission of the fellowship is to provide clinical, surgical and ART experiences of a sufficient scope, through a range of supervised interactions, so as to ensure the development of competent, compassionate and well-rounded reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialists.
