Prenatal and Neonatal Fellowship

This training track is designed for candidates who plan to pursue an academic career in prenatal medicine, and who have a goal of establishing independently funded research careers.

The fellow will be immersed in clinical prenatal medicine with a specific focus on the developing brain. The fellow will receive training in state-of-the-art prenatal diagnostic techniques including prenatal ultrasound and MRI, as well as bedside training in the evaluation and management of infants undergoing complicated transition from the prenatal environment.

The one-year fellowship track will focus on this in-depth clinical experience. In addition to the above clinical training, the two-year clinical-research fellowship track will include intensive training in basic research methodology and the application and interpretation of specialized prenatal MRI diagnostic, neuromonitoring and research tools. The trainee will then develop a research protocol with oversight and support from a dedicated mentor.

In the second year of fellowship, the fellow will focus primarily on her/his research study, publications and developing the platform for grant applications that lead to an independent research career.
