Our team of physicians, RNs, fellows and support staff collaborate to provide you comprehensive fertility services that meet the highest standards of excellence.
Our fertility specialists have advanced training and are board-certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
Our fellows are physicians who have completed a post-graduate residency in obstetrics and gynecology and are pursuing additional, specialized training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. Fellowship training is essential to our commitment to developing expertise in the next generation of leaders in our field.
Maureen Schulte, MD: 3rd Year Fellow
Maureen Schulte graduated from Truman State University Magna Cum Laude with a focus in Health Science and Biology. While at Truman, she was an accomplished collegiate athlete, playing varsity soccer. She went on to receive her medical doctorate from the University of Illinois College of Medicine where she became interested in research and was awarded the Craig Research Fellowship. She continued her training in Obstetrics & Gynecology at Washington University in St. Louis where she was awarded a $20,000 grant from the American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology to support her research on the endometrium. Her research in residency resulted in several oral presentations at national meetings including ASRM and SRI and peer reviewed publications. She is thrilled to continue her fellowship training at Washington University in St. Louis and her thesis is focused on endometrial receptivity.
Darcy Broughton, MD: 2nd Year Fellow
Darcy is originally from a small town in western Washington state. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Mount Holyoke College with a major in biochemistry. She received her medical degree from Alpert Medical School of Brown University, with a scholarly concentration in Women’s Reproductive Health, Freedom, and Rights.
