Fellowship in Neonatology

Batch Start Date

Course Description

Neonatology is a specialized branch of medicine focused on the care of newborn infants, particularly those who are premature, ill, or have other complications requiring intensive medical attention. Fellowship in Neonatology offers specialized training to pediatricians seeking expertise in the care of newborns, particularly those born prematurely or with medical complications. This advanced training equips physicians with the skills to manage complex conditions such as respiratory distress syndrome, congenital abnormalities, and infections that affect newborns. Fellows in Neonatology typically undergo intensive hands-on training in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), where they learn to provide critical care interventions like mechanical ventilation, administering medications, and performing procedures like intubation and umbilical catheterization. The fellowship also emphasizes research, enabling fellows to contribute to advancing knowledge in neonatal medicine through clinical trials and studies aimed at improving outcomes for infants. By the end of their fellowship, neonatologists are prepared to provide compassionate, specialized care to the most vulnerable patients in the first few weeks and months of life.

  • Fellows gain extensive training in neonatal care, focusing on the unique medical needs of newborns, including premature infants and those with complex medical conditions.
