Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship


Neonatal Perinatal Medicine Fellows are involve in either basic science, transitional, clinical  , follow-up or quality improvement research activities. Each Fellow is a principal investigator (PI) on his or her research project.

First year fellows discuss their general area of interest in research to the program director and seek advice in whom to interview among the faculty members and learn about their potential mutual interest in that area. After choosing an appropriate research mentor, they meet regularly with their research mentors and present their research concepts and hypothesis to their research mentor and to the Scholarship Oversight Committee (SOC) by the second half of their first year of fellowship. Subsequently during the 2nd and 3rd year they meet with the SOC twice a year for the Scholarship Oversight Committee to oversee and assess the progress of each fellow and verify and endorse their accomplishment to the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) that the Scholarly Activity requirement has been met. Our SOC schedule is as follows:


First Year Fellow  First Meeting  March - May
Second Year Fellow Second Meeting Sept - Nov
  Third Meeting  March - May
Third Year Fellow  Fourth Meeting Sept - Nov
  Fifth Meeting March - May

In addition, the SOC may meet on ad-hoc basis whenever there is an unresolved issue and/or concern about the fellow’s progress or resource needs, or to review important findings, or at important events (i.e. fellow’s research presentation within the institution).
