The Undergraduate Intern reflects the mission, vision, and values of NM, adheres to the organization’s Code of Ethics and Corporate Compliance Program, and complies with all relevant policies, procedures, guidelines and all other regulatory and accreditation standards.

The intern will respond to the need for well‐designed clinical trials in maternal‐fetal medicine, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) established the MFMU in 1986 to bring together top clinical centers and a data coordinating center to participate collaboratively in common protocols to conduct clinical trials. The MFMU focuses on clinical questions in maternal-fetal medicine and obstetrics, particularly with respect to the continuing problem of preterm birth. The MFMU is considered the most prestigious obstetric research network in the United States, and Northwestern has been a member since 2001.

The major aims of the MFMU Network are to:

‐ Reduce the rates of preterm birth, fetal growth abnormalities, newborn morbidity, and maternal complications of pregnancy

‐ Evaluate maternal and fetal interventions for efficacy, safety, and cost‐effectiveness

Results from the MFMU Network studies have impacted clinical practice, both by finding treatments that prevent poor pregnancy outcomes and by stopping ineffective, costly, and potentially harmful therapies. In order to achieve these aims, the Network also incorporates translational research, genetic analysis, and the evaluation of new technologies in the promotion of maternal‐child health and prevention of disease.
