Welcome to the Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship Program at the Division of Neonatology at UC San Diego

Our program is an extensive three year fellowship offering clinical training and research opportunities in neonatal-perinatal medicine. Our patient population is diverse,  allowing fellow exposure to a vast array of neonatal conditions, including cardiac and ECMO in a tertiary, level IV NICU, level II and III community NICUs, and a hospital-based level III NICU specializing in the care of extremely low birth weight infants. Our program emphasizes a multifaceted learning experience that promotes innovative research, critical thinking, and focused patient care.

Our thirty-two member Division of Neonatology provides clinical training and investigational mentoring for 9 fellows in neonatal-perinatal medicine. Our NPM staff offers expertise and research experiences in neonatal pulmonary, immunology, and neurology sciences. Additional expertise in global health, QI, palliative care, and point of care ultrasound permits fellows to have a broad-based educational experience. In addition, medical students, pediatric housestaff, and fellows receive clinical training and didactic teaching at both RCHSD and the UCSD Jacobs Medical Center. ​​
