Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center offers a three-year fellowship in neonatal-perinatal medicine.
Fellows participate in a variety of graduate courses, cutting-edge research, and hands-on patient care, which includes duty in the Intensive Care Nursery (ICN). We usually have two fellows in the program at any given time.
The Intensive Care Nursery is the only tertiary referral center for New Hampshire and south-central Vermont for high-risk obstetric and neonatal patients. There are approximately 475 admissions to the ICN each year.
The Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship program strives to successfully train future academic neonatologists by fostering the ability to provide a broad clinical experience with a focus in regional care and family-centered care, with excellent research mentorship, specifically in clinical research and quality improvement research. We hold trainees accountable to standards of excellence, entrusting each individual with increasing autonomy only when she or he demonstrates competence and ownership.
- Advance clinical knowledge and skills of fellows to produce competent, productive attending neonatologists.
- Promote leadership in providing high value, family-centered care.
- Develop academic and research capabilities.
