Weekly Fellow Conference:
Our teaching program is dedicated to producing the finest academically trained neonatal clinicians through a combination of rigorous clinical rotations, didactic and interactive learning. One of our differentiating methods are half day protected learning each Wednesday provided for all our fellows. These weekly conferences include journal club, Grand Rounds presentations, board review sessions, pathophysiology lectures, quality and safety review of patient care, palliative topics, and career development scholarly seminars. Faculty from our Neonatology Division as well as the Department of Pediatrics give lectures and attend fellow presentations during Wednesday Fellow Conference.
