Fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine, can I get a fellowship in gynecologic oncology afterward?

Fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine, can I get a fellowship in gynecologic oncology afterward?

Theoretically yes...: In practice, few if any physicians can endure 11 years of training and resident pay. Additionally, most program directors would frown upon the switch in direction as a sign of personality imbalance and/or unpredictability and would be reluctant to hire you after the first fellowship without a very good reason. Given that both subspecialties are now quite competitive, i advise against trying this. ...Read more

Why do doctors recommend an IV during labor and delivery?

Can a doctoral level nurse practitioner seek certification as a psychopharmacologist? Or, is that just for medical doctors?

Can a doctoral level nurse practitioner seek certification as a psychopharmacologist? Or, is that just for medical doctors?

No: There are basic psychopharmacology courses that nurses can take, but none offers "certification as a psychopharmacologist." being able to independently prescribe such medications also depends on the laws in your state. Psychiatrists have many years' specialty training in psychopharmacology, and on-the-job review of their cases. Also, ascp certifies physicians in "advanced psychopharmacology.". ...Read more
