Farmington, Maine¾

 

Franklin Health Women’s Care and Franklin Memorial Hospital are pleased to announce that Jennifer Zeliger, MD, recently received certification by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Certification recognizes clinical competence at a level above that required for licensure.

 

To become board certified, a physician must pass a written test to demonstrate that he or she has obtained the special knowledge and skills required for medical and surgical care of women; must also show experience in treating women’s health care prior to the oral examination; and successfully pass an oral examination given by a team of well-respected national experts that tests the physician’s skills, knowledge and ability to treat different conditions.

“Women’s care providers focus on the health of women before, during and after childbearing years and diagnosing and treating conditions of the reproductive system and associated disorders,” said Dr. Jay Naliboff, vice president medical affairs. “This certification is an indication of the expert capabilities of the medical and surgical care of women that Dr. Zeliger provides to our community,”

 

Dr. Zeliger completed a four-year obstetrics and gynecology residency at Maine Medical Center. Before that, she received her medical degree from the University of Louisville School of Medicine. While there, she was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society and the recipient of the Janke B. Mains Memorial Award for Outstanding Performance in Microstructure and Development.

 

Dr. Zeliger’s professional interests include vaginal surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and caring for our obstetrical patients.
