Biography

Dr. J. Christopher Glantz is a professor of OBGYN and Public Health Sciences at the University of Rochester (UR) School of Medicine. His education includes a BA in biology from University of California at San Diego, an MD from University of California at Los Angeles, and an OBGYN residency at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. After six years as a general OBGYN in Boston, Dr. Glantz moved to Rochester in 1990 for UR’s Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) fellowship and a Master’s in Public Health. He is double-boarded in OBGYN and MFM, a fellow of the American College of OBGYN (ACOG), and his current clinical practice focuses on OBGYN ultrasound and MFM consults. Ongoing academic activities include medical education (MFM fellows & sonographers, and as associate editor of the department’s online medical education program, Peri-FACTS), perinatal epidemiology (Director of the Finger Lakes Perinatal Data System), perinatal quality assurance (member of New York State Perinatal Quality Collaborative and the Safe Motherhood Initiative, and co-director of the NYS Maternal Mortality Review Board), and work with ACOG to improve women’s health as chair of Section 10, ACOG District II.

Research

My primary focus is perinatal epidemiology, using birth certificate databases to evaluate practice variation and outcomes associated with obstetrical interventions (e.g., labor induction and cesarean section), and on perinatal outcomes associated with maternal obesity. A secondary focus has been on obstetrical ultrasound.
