Thank you for exploring the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship here at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin. We are excited to have our first class of intelligent, caring and committed fellows start with us in July 2022, and are ready to match with our next class for July 2023!
The approval of this fellowship program has given us the opportunity to design an entirely new curriculum with purely the fellow’s educational experience in mind. Having trained in the United Kingdom and New Zealand, and worked in the U.S. since 2013, I have had the opportunity to witness a wide range of educational approaches. Our associate program director also brings a wide range of educational training and experience — as well as national leadership within the American Academy of Pediatrics Trainees and Early Career Neonatologists network.
With input from the neonatal faculty and associated specialties, we have designed a curriculum adopting all the best components of training we have experienced nationally and internationally. Our diverse, dedicated team of clinicians and researchers models an exceptional level of care and will present fellows with a unique range of scholarly opportunities including clinical research, point-of-care ultrasound, advocacy, ethics and health care administration and management.
Our program is located in central Austin, a vibrant, fast-growing city that is consistently named among the Best Places to Live in the USA. We strongly believe that work-life balance is not only achievable but absolutely necessary, especially in a high-pressure specialty such as neonatology. As a team we support each other practically and emotionally to deal with the stresses of the NICU environment. We believe the infants and families under our care deserve to be looked after by a clinical team that is rested, engaged and effective.
If you think Austin and our program sound like a good fit for you, or if you would like to hear more, please contact our program coordinator. Or feel free to contact me directly. We look forward to hearing from you!
