Program History

The CHRISTUS Spohn OB and Women’s Health Fellowship was established in 2002 to provide Family Medicine physicians with added surgical skills in Obstetrics. Since then, the fellowship has graduated 1-2 fellows almost yearly. Our graduates have pursued their interests in different areas, including full-scope FM-OB in private and academic settings with OB hospital privileges.
