Division Chief


Thomas F. Kelly, MD

Welcome to the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at the University of California, San Diego.  Our division has a large number of exceptional clinician-educators as well as clinical and basic science investigators.  We provide clinical care for those with complicated pregnancies, consultation for patients referred by other obstetrical providers, prenatal imaging and diagnostic procedures.  The division has specific interests in placental disorders, diabetes, hypertension and fetal ultrasound.  Many of our members are involved in clinical research in these areas and a few have active labs studying placental development.  We have a highly regarded training program in maternal-fetal medicine which continues to produce the next generation of academic and clinical perinatologists.
