Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship Program

Fellowship ProgramThe Neonatal Fellowship Program at the University of New Mexico is an outstanding training program for those interested in a career in neonatology. The training program has been in existence for almost 40 years and has been essential in improving the health of critically ill neonates in New Mexico. This is a three-year training program in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine and is approved by the Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The fellowship training takes place at the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital and the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center.

Our fellows receive outstanding clinical training in the care of critically ill neonatal patients admitted to the NBICU. All admissions to the NBICU are directly cared for by the Neonatology Service. In addition, fellows have electives in Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Developmental Follow-up, Perinatal Consultation and Genetics, ECMO, and Cardiovascular Surgery. Didactic sessions include a 3-day annual Neonatal Skills Lab using high fidelity simulation, a Neonatal Fellows Fundamentals in Research Seminar Series (Scholarly Activity Core Curriculum) and a Fellows Neonatology Core Curriculum. The Division also has several weekly Neonatology conferences and didactic opportunities.
