Neonatology Education

The Division of Neonatology is heavily involved in neonatal-perinatal medicine education at every level of medical education – medical students, pediatric residents, neonatal-perinatal medicine fellows, attendings, hospitalists, physician assistants, neonatal nurse practitioners, and nurses. Educational programs cover core knowledge base didactic series, simulation in neonatal resuscitation and ECMO, advanced practice skills, bedside ultrasound, and effective communication.

We are well-represented nationally and internationally in its educational efforts with active participation as invited speakers for educational conferences; authors of reviews, chapters, and books; and members of key American Academy of Pediatric committees setting the standard of care for newborn care. Dr. Camilia Martin, Chief of Neonatology, is a member of the AAP Committee on the Fetus & Newborn; co-Editor of the Manual of Neonatal Care, an international best-selling book in the bedside care of critical neonates; and co-Author of Neonatology Review, a 5-volume series in the fundamentals of neonatal-perinatal physiology serving as a resource for those studying for the boards. Dr, Jeffrey Perlman, former Chief of the Division, is a member of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program Steering Committee (NRPSC) and co-Editor of the textbook Neurology: Neonatology Questions and Controversies, 3rd Edition.

Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship

The Division offers a three-year Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  Our fellowship provides the best clinical program and research experience available in preparation for a successful career in academic neonatology, through structured clinical and educational curricula and a research curriculum tailored to the interest of each fellow. The neonatal-perinatal medicine fellows are involved in a spectrum of care opportunities for the neonate, including prenatal consultation through our Fetal Care Center, delivery room resuscitation, intensive care management, convalescent care, discharge and follow-up in our Neonatal Neurodevelopmental Clinic.  Our fellows are extremely successful in their scholarly work, presenting at both regional & national conferences and producing several publications during their fellowship.  Additional education and research opportunities are available through our Neonatal Resuscitation & Simulation and Quality Improvement Programs.  Our program is proud to highlight our 100% Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine boards passing rate for the last ten years (2012-2022).
