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.
