Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Program

About Us

The Neonatal-Perinatal fellowship at Indiana University is an established training program accredited by the ACGME since 1984.  Our neonatal fellows take part in a well-rounded curriculum, balancing time between clinical experiences, teaching opportunities and academic activities. We offer an individualized program in which fellows design their own educational track based on their career goals.  As part of a large medical school and pediatric department, we can offer our fellows varied opportunities for scholarship.

The section 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. Our neonatology fellows routinely present their research at national and regional meetings and many have won prestigious awards for their work.  Our fellows have broad academic interests and graduates are equally divided in their career choices between basic science research, clinical research, education and clinical medicine.

Fellows in our program care for newborns with a wide-spectrum of neonatal disorders which gives our fellows excellent opportunities to learn from their patients and their families. Fellows that graduate from our program have a passion for life-long learning and feel confident managing any neonatal problem.
