Our Division offers an accredited 3-year training program in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine with positions available for 3-4 new fellows each year. The program’s goal is to train pediatricians for a successful career in neonatal-perinatal medicine. The training program integrates a strong background in basic and clinical research, excellent clinical training in the care of sick neonates, and comprehensive follow-up of infants discharged from the neonatal ICU. The core curriculum is guided by the American Board of Pediatrics subspecialty training requirements and the ACGME’s areas of general competency: medical knowledge, patient care, professionalism, interpersonal and communication skills, practice-based learning and improvement, and systems-based practice.
Upon successful completion of the program, the fellow will be eligible for certification by the Sub-Board of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine of the American Board of Pediatrics. Positions are available for 3-4 fellows each year; the training generally starts on July 7th, but alternative start dates may be considered. For selected applicants, a fourth year of training that integrates an MS or MPH degree may be considered.
Clinical Training Program
Clinical training is organized into rotations that allow the fellow to develop increasing patient management and teaching responsibility and autonomy over the course of 3 years.
Research Training Program
The primary goal of the research component of the fellowship program is high-quality scholarly activity by the fellow. The program provides the fellow with guided research training and broad exposure to research experiences during the three years of fellowship.
Coursework and Conferences
To complement the individualized learning accomplished through the research project, a schedule of didactic courses and conferences are offered over the three-year fellowship program.
