The Neonatal-Perinatal fellowship at IU School of Medicine is an established training program accredited by the ACGME since 1984. Neonatal fellows take part in a well-rounded curriculum, balancing time between clinical experiences, teaching opportunities and academic activities. This individualized program allows fellows to design their own educational track based on their career goals of clinician, educator or physician scientist. As part of a large medical school and pediatric department, the Neonatal-Perinatal fellowship offers varied opportunities for scholarship.
The Division of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine has a long history of excellence in clinical and basic science research. Exposure to clinical or basic science research provides fellows with the skills necessary to evaluate literature and apply those results to clinical care, teaching and/or investigation. Neonatology fellows routinely present their research at national and regional meetings and have won prestigious awards for their work. Fellows have broad academic interests, and graduates are equally divided in their career choices between basic science research, clinical research, education and clinical medicine.
