dc.description.abstract Obstetric medicine is a subspecialty of internal medicine that involves the management of medical conditions that may affect the course of pregnancy. It is an established subspecialty in many parts of the world, with recognised training programmes and an active international society; however, no formal training programme has been developed in South Africa (SA) as yet. Medical problems are responsible for the majority (60%) of maternal deaths in SA and women of childbearing potential are disproportionately affected by medical conditions such as HIV and obesity. Obstetric physicians would play a complementary role in the care of pregnant patients and could contribute to improving maternal health and lowering the maternal mortality rate in SA en_ZA
