Interdepartmental Division of Critical Care

The Toronto Obstetric Medicine Program focuses on the care of pregnant women with medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, kidney disease, hematologic disorders and genetic conditions. Preconception counseling, genetic counseling, optimization of health status prior to pregnancy, assessment of the safety of medication use during pregnancy; management of complications, management at labour, and delivery and postpartum care are all important aspects of the care of women with medical conditions. 

An Obstetric Medicine fellowship program was established at the University of Toronto in the 1990s and the education of trainees has been a major focus of the program since that time.
In additional to outstanding educational and clinical activities, there is also a very active research program with many ongoing important research initiatives.

More than 50 physicians with expertise in medical disorders of pregnancy are involved in the program – making the Toronto program one of the largest in the world. The Obstetric Medicine physicians work closely with obstetricians, maternal fetal medicine specialists, obstetric anesthetists, neonatologists, pediatricians, nurses, and other allied health care staff to ensure that women with medical disorders —and their babies— have safe pregnancies.
