The Next Generation of Leaders in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine
Our goal is to develop the next generation of leaders in neonatal-perinatal medicine by preparing them for a successful career in neonatology.
Research experiences during fellowship, combined with a superb clinical experience, develop knowledge and skills that lead to later success in whatever career path the fellow chooses: academic neonatology – with either a basic or clinical research interest – or clinical neonatology practice.
Our fellowship program’s strengths are the range of opportunities available and our commitment to mentoring. Research opportunities are available in:
- Clinical/translational research
- Quality improvement
- Laboratories focusing on molecular biology
A fetal lamb "NICU" is also available to serve as a resource for specific research questions.
To supplement this individual experience, each fellow will also participate in a core curriculum for all pediatric fellows designed to provide important background material in:
- Critical reading
- Scientific writing
- Adult education
- Health care policy and economics
Care for Sick Neonates
Each fellow is also provided a comprehensive experience in the care of sick neonates. Clinical education for fellows is under the guidance of 24 board-certified neonatologists.
The University of Utah faculty serves as the major tertiary care resource for children in more than 15% of the geographic area of the United States, thereby offering a broad and diverse neonatal experience.
