Director, Outpatient High Risk Clinic
Dr. Durica graduated from Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Wellspan Health in 2003. Following residency training, she completed fellowship training in Maternal Fetal Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Magee-Womens Hospital before joining the faculty at Wellspan Health in 2006. Dr. Durica joined the Carilion Clinic Maternal Fetal Medicine division in 2009, and provides consultation with a focus on high risk maternal pregnancy complications and fetal ultrasound diagnosis. Dr. Durica is active in student and resident teaching, and serves as the outreach liason to referring providers for Maternal Fetal Medicine. As co-director of the Carilion Clinic Perinatal Collaborative, she strives to provide comprehensive prenatal diagnosis and coordination of care necessary to prepare patients who require delivery at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital for fetal abnormalities while assisting outside providers in maintaining local obstetric care. In addition to her clinical responsibilities, Dr. Durica is an assistant professor at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, and participates in research projects with students, faculty, and residents. Dr. Durica is a member of the Virginia Neonatal Perinatal Collaborative as well as the Virginia Maternal Mortality Review Team in helping to encourage improved maternal and fetal outcomes in our state.
Providing best care for patients facing complications in their pregnancy or involving their fetus requires communication with the patient, coordination with a multidisciplinary care team, and shared discussion with families and providers regarding management. My goal is to educate patients and families, and help them make choices that are best for them given the complication they face.
