Bart completed a rotating internship at The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at University Hospitals of Cleveland in 1963.
Bart’s thirty-five year career combined medical practice, teaching in obstetrics and gynecology, and fetal physiology research. Following the completion of his residency, he received a postdoctoral fellowship at the Carnegie Institution of Washington and Johns Hopkins University. In 1965, Bart joined the OB-GYN faculty of the Medical College of Georgia, becoming an Associate Professor in 1968 and continuing his research. In 1969, he joined the faculty of the University of Southern California and was promoted to professor in 1975. He continued his teaching and research interests at the Los Angeles County – USC Medical Center Women’s Hospital until 1977, training scientists and students from the United States, The Netherlands and Japan. He attended meetings and visited colleagues in North and South America, Europe, Korea, Japan and the South Pacific. In 1973, he spent three months as a Visiting Professor at Saigon Medical School, South Vietnam through an American Medical Association program.
In 1977, Bart joined the faculty of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at the Catholic University and St. Radboud Hospital in Nijmegen, where, in addition to teaching, research in fetal physiology and behavior, and a clinical obstetrics practice, he served on thesis committees or as a promoter for 13 doctoral candidates.
