Dr. Schrufer-Poland highly values working in a collaborative, often multidisciplinary environment to provide the best possible care for patients. She believes that Maternal Fetal Medicine is an exceptional specialty that allows for the application of research driven evidence-based medicine to the improvement of patient care and outcomes. In addition, the development of complications in her own pregnancy provided her with a unique perspective of the difference between the patient’s priorities and the physician’s, and the challenging care of two (and sometimes, more) patients. This experience emphasized the importance of a patient-centered approach to medical care, working together to help women have the healthiest pregnancy possible. “It is a tremendous privilege to be able to take care of women during such an important, and incredibly vulnerable time in their lives.”

Dr. Schrufer-Poland completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Missouri Kansas City in Kansas City, Missouri, where she also completed her fellowship in Maternal Fetal Medicine. Prior to medical school, Dr. Schrufer-Poland earned her PhD in Cellular and Molecular Physiology from Penn State University College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
