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.

Core Curriculum

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
  • Biostatistics
  • Ethics
  • Health care policy and economics
  • QA/QI
  • Administration

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.

Please explore our Fellowship Resources page for information about our curriculum, clinical rotations, clinical facilities, and fellowship presentations.
