Mission and Aims

Holding hands with a newborn in ICN


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.

Program aims

  1. Advance clinical knowledge and skills of fellows to produce competent, productive attending neonatologists.
  2. Promote leadership in providing high value, family-centered care.
  3. Develop academic and research capabilities.

Commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging

The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine fellowship stands with Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and Clinics and the Geisel School of Medicine’s commitment to fostering diversity and equity for our patients, colleagues, and communities. We recognize the importance of developing and maintaining a culture of inclusion and belonging. We are committed to creating a supportive environment for all members of the team.
