Dr. Nathan Fox is a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at Maternal Fetal Medicine Associates, and also works at Carnegie Imaging for Women. In addition, Dr. Fox delivers babies on the labor floor at Mount Sinai. Read on to learn more about him and his love for maternal-fetal medicine.
When Dr. Fox began medical school, he didn’t precisely know what area he wanted to focus on. During his first year, he completed an apprenticeship with an OB/GYN, where he had the opportunity to perform deliveries and C-sections. It was then that he fell in love with the field. During his third year he then went on to complete his clinical rotations, which really verified that OB/GYN was the field that he truly enjoyed.
After deciding that he wanted to become a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, Dr. Fox had to go through rigorous training. After he finished his OB/GYN residency, he underwent three years of a Fellowship, which is additional training in maternal-fetal medicine. About half of that is spent doing research and the other half is clinical, which is divided into ultrasound as well as treatment of high-risk pregnancies.
