During the three years of fellowship training, fellows’ education will be based on the curriculum recommended by the American Board of Pediatrics.
This will be taught primarily through weekly conferences that will consist of physiology seminars, case discussions, journal clubs, and teaching sessions conducted by current and visiting faculty members.
In addition, fellows will be taught through pathology conferences, ethics case conferences, and Pediatric Grand Rounds.
Fellows are expected to prepare and lead regularly scheduled Neonatology Morbidity and Mortality reviews.
Fellows take part in regularly scheduled joint meetings with maternal-fetal medicine specialists.
Twice a year, fellows also participate in a day-long joint conference with fellows and faculty from the University Of Vermont School Of Medicine.
Fellows are expected to take a mandatory course in biostatistics during their fellowship, preferably in their first year.
First year fellows participate in a large regional Simulation Boot Camp geared towards preparing new fellows for fellowship. And senior fellows take part in a regional Senior Fellow Boot Camp that pushes and solidifies fellow skills.
Before graduation, fellows will present their scholarly work at the Department of Pediatrics Grand Rounds in the spring of their final year.
Additionally, presenting scholarly work at regional and national conferences is encouraged and supported.
