The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Training Program is sponsored by the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Children's Hospital Colorado. This is a three-year postdoctoral training program in neonatal-perinatal medicine and is approved by the Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The program is directed by Thomas Parker, MD.
Fellows are supervised by faculty within the Section of Neonatology and the division of Perinatal Medicine and Research. The program includes 12 months of clinical training with 21 months of research activity. The program is primarily interested in helping trainees develop successful careers, based on excellence in research, scholarship, and clinical medicine.
The Section also trains pediatric residents and offers electives to fourth-year medical students.
The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is taught annually at Children's Hospital Colorado with the intent of educating caregivers so that there is at least one certified individual present at every delivery. Participation in NRP by your hospital's perinatal caregivers is vital.
