Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine (Neonatology)
The intent of our neonatal medicine Fellowship is to train Pediatricians in the diagnosis and management of disorders in premature and full-term newborn infants to be able to provide up-to-date, comprehensive, compassionate care and to become the next generation of academic Neonatologists.
This training program will provide the foundation necessary to evolve into competent clinicians, researchers, teachers and leaders within the field of neonatal medicine. This includes progressive clinical, technical, and consultative experiences that will enable the fellows to develop expertise as an Attending / Consultant in the subspecialty of neonatal medicine. Fellows develop a commitment to lifelong learning, and must emphasize scholarship, self-instruction, development of critical analysis of clinical problems, and the ability to make appropriate decisions. Progressive acquisition of skill in investigative efforts related to the subspecialty is provided during the training.
