Maria Jacqueline Small
Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Reducing severe maternal morbidity and mortality remain an important focus of my work both clinically, scholarly and in my community engagement.  Maternal hypertensive disease and cardiac disease are areas of particular interest.  Prenatal diagnosis, including the diagnosis and management of conditions such as fetal growth restriction and fetal anomalies are also a key part of my clinical, teaching and scholarly work.  My teaching and scholarly interest in global health focuses on these areas.
