Many of his trainees still practice and care for the pregnant women and their newborns in the State of Maryland, others have moved on to leadership positions in the field.

Caring for so many of the critically-ill pregnancies that have been transported to UMMC, Dr. Malinow has maintained a career-long interest in the mechanisms and treatment of the diseases of pregnancy.
