Maryland Section Mission


Welcome to the Maryland Section of ACOG webpage. The Maryland Section is part of ACOG District IV comprised mainly of Eastern Seaboard states: Maryland, DC, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, as well as Puerto Rico, West Indies, and Argentina. 


Our Section strives to represent our members through Outreach, Education, and Advocacy.



We have approximately 855 Fellows and Junior Fellows in active practice in Maryland. There are 1,413,184 reproductive age women residing in Maryland with a total female population of 2,905,274. (The Obstetrician-Gynecologist Workforce in the United States, Facts, Figures and Implications 2017) Our perinatal centers are designed by both maternal levels of care (I-IV) and neonatal levels of care (I-IV). We have an active Maternal Mortality Review Committee organized under state regulations and supported by MedChi. We have an active Perinatal Quality Collaborative that is funded through the Maryland Patient Safety Center. Maryland is a state participant in The Alliance for Innovation in Maternal Care (AIM).



Maryland is home to two University based medical schools: The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and The University of Maryland (UMD). We have four accredited Obstetrics and Gynecology residency programs: JHU, UMD, Sinai (Lifebridge), and Franklin Square.



Our advocacy work is supported by the firm of Schwartz, Metz & Wise, P.A.
