The Neonatal-Perinatal training program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai trains physicians for a career in academic neonatology. For this program, clinical training is limited to supervised coverage at The Mount Sinai Hospital and our teaching affiliate, Elmhurst Hospital Center.
As a trainee, you’ll be providing clinical care for neonates in our delivery rooms and neonatal intensive care unit. You’ll also rotate through our Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, the Maternal and Fetal Medicine practice, Pediatric Radiology, and our developmental follow-up clinic. Fellows with a specific career focus can tailor their electives to fit their interests. Our teaching conferences include a structured course in the fundamentals of neonatology, as well as biostatistics, quality improvement, and research design. Fellows are also expected to teach our neonatal resuscitation program.
In addition to your clinical training, there are a number of National Institutes of Health-funded research opportunities available within the School’s laboratories.
Our training program is highly selective. Typically, each year we receive more than 95 applications for our two to three available positions. Graduates of our program go on to work at academic institutions throughout the nation and present their research findings at regional and national academic meetings.
