We have closely monitored the developments during the COVID-19 pandemic and have made the determination to host Fetology Chicago: Practice and Discovery online this year. The one-day virtual event will be held on Thursday, September 10 and will aim to provide an interactive educational experience divided into five sessions: Cardiology, Urology/Nephrology, Fetal Thoracic Disease, Fetal Neurosurgery and Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS).
Fetology Chicago is an educational event sponsored by The Chicago Institute for Fetal Health and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine Office of Continuing Medical Education. The focus of the one-day virtual event will be on the multi-disciplinary approach to evaluation, care and intervention for a spectrum of congenital diseases including spina bifida, TTTS, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, urinary tract dilation and congenital heart disease. The curriculum is designed for obstetricians, maternal fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, cardiologists, radiologists, sonographers, nurses, pediatric surgical specialists, genetic counselors, and other perinatal specialists and staff. This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM.
