Training and Education
The Section of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine is actively involved in the training of pediatric residents, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and neonatology fellows.
Our fellowship training program is open to pediatricians who have completed residency and are interested in pursuing additional training in clinical neonatology as well as academic inquiry and research. It is structured as a 3 year experience and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, with the goal of training future leaders in academic neonatology.
Clinical training takes place in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, the regional neonatal referral center for Southern Connecticut. The unit provides tertiary care to infants with a wide variety of medical, surgical, and cardiac diseases. Exposure to high frequency ventilation, inhaled nitric oxide, Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), therapeutic hypothermia, pre and post-operative surgical care, high-risk neurodevelopmental follow-up, and high-risk obstetrics is provided.
