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.

Meet Our Current Fellows

Dr. Jennifer Blakemore attended Cornell University for undergraduate and then the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania for medical school. She graduated in 2017 from residency at NYU. She has had an interest in REI since medical school and current research interests include fertility preservation, genomics, and ART outcomes. Personal interests include the performing arts (especially in New York!), travel and spending time with her two year old son!

Dr. Shannon DeVore is the second year fellow. She completed her undergraduate education at Princeton University, attended medical school at UC Irvine, and completed Ob/Gyn residency at New York Presbyterian, Columbia. Her current research focus is on fertility preservation with oocyte cryopreservation. She has presented multiple projects at ASRM and SRI. She is originally from San Diego, CA so loves the beach, hiking, and sunsets. She has a 10 month old daughter and a Chihuahua-Terrier mix named Finn.

Dr. Alexis Masbou is a third year fellow. She completed her undergraduate education at Johns Hopkins University where she received a degree in Cognitive Science. She then pursued premedical studies at the Goucher College Post-Baccalaureate Program. A native New Yorker, she returned home to attend medical school at SUNY Stony Brook University. It was there where she was awarded the Barry Coller scholarship for international studies and worked abroad in South Africa analyzing the effect of HIV status on the transplacental transfer of measles antibodies. She next attended New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell for her residency in ob/gyn. Since residency, she has presented research in this subspecialty at ASRM and PCRS, in addition to publishing in Fertility and Sterility. She is currently studying the endometrial microbiome of women who fail embryo transfers in genetically-tested embryos and the effect of vitamin D status. In her spare time, she enjoys learning about food and wine, listening to jazz, traveling, and spending time with family.  

Susan Maxwell is a third year fellow. She attended Northern Arizona University where she received her Bachelors of Science in Chemistry. She then went on to complete her medical degree at the Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. Her specialty training was completed in Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Langone Health. Her research interests involve genetics and the embryo transcriptome.  Her recent publications have investigated the role of embryonic mosaicism in pregnancy outcomes.   She is currently studying the relationship between mitochondria gene expression and mitochondrial copy number in blastocysts.  Outside of medicine she enjoys spending time at the beach and participating in activities such as running, biking, and yoga.
