Divisions & Programs

  • Nurse Midwifery Program: In Obstetrics, our providers provide both low and high-risk management for pregnancies. This includes a midwife program, one of the first in its kind in an academic center and an option of a low-risk birthing center. For those desiring a traditional model, there is an outstanding group of Obstetricians & Gynecologists providing prenatal and delivery care at both Jacobs Medical Center and at the UC San Diego Hillcrest Medical Center.
  • Maternal-Fetal Medicine: When there are high-risk pregnancies, Maternal-Fetal Medicine subspecialists can perform consultative management, assisting referring physicians and provide prenatal care. There is an outstanding prenatal diagnosis program, which attracts referrals regionally.
  • General Gynecology: General Gynecology has a number of offices throughout the county. Patients may be referred for routine care. However, there are a number of centers of excellence including management of uterine myomata, menopausal disorders, conditions affecting sexuality and minimally invasive surgery.
  • Urogynecology: For patients with pelvic floor disorders and incontinence, a world renowned Urogynecologist Division accepts referrals. This service not only provides direct patient care, but is also internationally regarded, studying and contributing to the knowledge and management of these conditions.
  • Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility: The Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Division cares for women with underlying endocrine disorders as well as evaluates and manages couples with infertility. Providers have expertise in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), treating uterine abnormalities and assisted reproductive technology.
  • Family Planning: For those with issues complicating contraceptive management, or need for pregnancy termination services, the Family Planning Division has a team of providers that are adept not only in evaluation and management, but also provide extremely compassionate care.

Patient and Family Advisory Council, Women and Infants Services

While the number of specialists and sub-specialists seem vast, the goal is to ensure that a patient desiring the best care, for whatever her condition, will find it at our institution. Our department is committed to providing a wide spectrum of the highest quality knowledge, patient care and service.

To this end, the Patient and Family Advisory Council, Women and Infants Services was founded in April 2011. Its mission is to improve the safety, quality, and overall care experience for women and their families at UC San Diego Health.
