Neonatal and Perinatal Medicine Fellowship

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Neonatal & Perinatal Medicine Fellowship program! Our ACGME-accredited program trains physicians for careers in neonatology by providing exceptional experiences in clinical neonatal health care delivery, research and teaching.

Over the three years of your fellowship, you’ll use an evidence-based approach to manage all neonatal clinical problems, including neonatal surgical patients. You’ll implement modern methods of maternal-infant health care delivery, including environmental and family-centered care of the high-risk infant using the latest neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) technology. And you’ll have ample opportunity to perform basic, translational and/or clinical research.

In addition, you’ll work as part of a dynamic team in a vibrant city that is frequently ranked among the very best places to live in the nation.

Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to meeting you!

Why Choose the UW Neonatal and Perinatal Medicine Fellowship?

High-Volume Deliveries

The majority of clinical experiences take place at our community partner, Meriter Hospital, the #1 hospital for deliveries in Wisconsin with over 4500 births per year.

A Comprehensive Children’s Hospital with a Level IV NICU

Additional experiences are available at American Family Children’s Hospital (AFCH), a comprehensive children’s hospital with one of only two level IV NICUs in the state. AFCH provides services to premature and full-term infants requiring complex surgical interventions and/or subspecialty medical care.

A Strong Partnership with OB/GYN

The UW Department of Pediatrics has a close working relationship with the UW Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. That partnership, along with our program’s philosophy, results in a versatile and encompassing fellowship that will allow you to fully utilize the resources of both departments.
