Mass General OB/GYN at SMFM Pregnancy Meeting 2021

The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's Annual Meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting™, is the premier event for presenting and learning about cutting-edge science in obstetrics and provides participants the opportunity to connect with leaders and colleagues in maternal-fetal medicine. Learn more about the research presented by members of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Massachusetts General Hospital.

The Annual Meeting is the centerpiece of the Society's work and the premier event for learning about cutting-edge science in obstetrics and for connecting with leaders in maternal-fetal medicine. The basic format of the meeting—postgraduate courses, oral abstract presentations, posters, wellness activities and networking events—is largely the same as it has been in the past.

Highlights

  • No longer constrained by time or location, some events at the 2021 Annual Meeting will happen outside of the meeting week
  • The cost to attend the 2021 Annual Meeting is half the price of what it has been in the past, and registration for the scientific sessions is free for fellows, students and residents if they register prior to the early bird deadline: December 21st.  After December 21, the cost increases for all registrant types by $100
  • The postgraduate courses, poster presentations and abstract oral presentations will be archived and available through the end of 2021. Attendees can register now, watch at their leisure and access more content in 2021 than they might have otherwise
