Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship
We are thrilled that you are considering our Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine fellowship training program. Our goal is to train the next generation of physician-scientists and clinician-educators in academic neonatology. Our program emphasizes the importance of the role of the neonatologist in scientific investigation to advance knowledge in the field; in education of pediatric trainees; and in family-centered care from the prenatal period, through the neonatal period and beyond, with a focus on outcomes.
We are delighted to share our program’s highlights with you:
- Our fellows are the heart of our 82 bed Level IV NICU in Cleveland, Ohio, and we place great value on fellow autonomy and independence.
- Our fellows graduate with superb clinical and procedural skills, including in-depth training and clinical experience in neonatal ECMO, simulation, point-of-care ultrasound, and neonatal follow-up, with the skills to lead neonatal transports.
- We offer a broad spectrum of research opportunities including bench, translational, and clinical research. All fellows design and participate in a myriad of quality improvement projects.
- We encourage our fellows to discover and follow their passions. Fellows have a wide variety of opportunities to collaborate and learn from specialists in disciplines throughout University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University and nationally, including medical education, technology and innovation, humanities, and bioethics.
- Our division features prominently in the history of neonatal-perinatal medicine and has been home to leaders in our field, including Drs. Marshall Klaus, Avroy Fanaroff, Richard Martin, Maureen Hack, and Cynthia Bearer. We are a founding and continuous member of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development’s (NICHD) Neonatal Research Network.
- We have a rich tradition of writing and editing leading textbooks including: Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Diseases of the Fetus and Infant (Fanaroff & Martin), Care of the High Risk Neonate (Klaus & Fanaroff), Neonatology at a Glance (Fanaroff & Lissauer). Our faculty also serve on several journal editorial boards. Fellows have opportunities to be involved in these pursuits.
