Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Training Programs

Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine

Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine (NPM) subspecialists provide comprehensive medical care for the newborn infant, particularly the ill or premature infant, and serve as consultants to pediatricians caring for newborns and to obstetricians caring for women with high-risk pregnancies. Training programs in NPM provide education in fetal and neonatal physiology and the clinical skills to diagnose and manage problems seen in the prenatal, intrapartum and postnatal periods, including long-term neurodevelopmental follow up. Training consists of a three-year fellowship following successful completion of a pediatric or medicine/pediatric residency. During training, NPM fellows acquire clinical competence, and also conduct and complete a scholarly work product.

Program Goal

The primary goal of the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Training Program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is to develop academic neonatologists. Our educational philosophy is to give significant responsibility for clinical and research activities to maximize learning and acquisition of skills, while providing sufficient oversight to guarantee a productive environment. There are three first-year positions, with 8 to10 fellows in training positions at a time.
