Training / Fellowships

xrays_on_monitors-cropped.jpgWe believe an excellent fellowship program requires equilibrium between clinical exposure, teaching opportunities and well-elaborated scientific investigation.

Clinical and Teaching Opportunities

Four major hospitals in downtown Indianapolis - Riley, University, Wishard and Methodist Hospitals, are within walking distance and connected by monorail. These 4 hospitals account for over 7,200 deliveries annually.

Weekly meetings with the High Risk Maternal-Fetal Medicine Staff at University Hospital enable s fellows to learn about upcoming high-risk deliveries and pertinent management issues. Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in the Newborn Follow-up Program in the Riley Outpatient Center, a clinical experience which provides an opportunity to follow patients from the NICU on a longer-term basis, assessing neuro-development skills and milestone attainment in NICU graduates.


Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at IU has a long history of excellence in clinical and basic research. Guided by world renown mentors / Investigators, fellows at Indiana University receive exposure to leading edge clinical or basic research to provide them with the skills necessary to evaluate literature and research, as they apply those results to clinical care, teaching and/or investigation.
