Massachusetts General Hospital
Boston, Massachusetts



This is the only postgraduate course in the United States, Canada and Europe that provides new information on exposures during pregnancy which could be harmful to the fetus. We expect the participants to be better able to analyze scientific data on potential fetal risks, to gain knowledge on new developments in understanding recognized human teratogens, to become better at finding the critical published data and to be more effective in counseling patients.

All speakers are experts on each topic, and new information is provided as well as a balanced perspective on current controversies. The topics presented focus on diseases which the mother may have and medications taken by the mother to treat medical conditions. Invited speakers are encouraged to attend other presentations and ask questions of the other speakers, which will lead to lively, informal discussions.
