Training Future Leaders in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine

The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship program at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin seeks applicants who wish to join a model of providing compassionate, evidence-based and inquisitive health care and who share a broad vision of scholarly activity. The fellowship offers opportunities to develop skills in clinical research, advocacy, ethics, global health, point-of-care ultrasound, education, palliative care, administration/management, biomedical engineering/technology development and quality improvement.

Training is provided by a team of 19 neonatology faculty members. The neonatology attending team is supported by an exceptionally talented team of neonatal nurse practitioners, highly skilled neonatal nurses and specialists from obstetrics, maternal-fetal medicine, pediatric surgery, pediatric cardiovascular surgery, palliative care and all major pediatric subspecialties.

The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship is affiliated with Dell Med’s Department of Pediatrics.
