Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Research Opportunities

There are outstanding research opportunities within the UPMC Newborn Medicine Program, the Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, the Department of Pediatrics at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, and the University of Pittsburgh and its affiliated programs, as well as surrounding institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University.

The research experience begins with mentor selection, a process guided by the neonatal faculty. Mentors make a commitment to fellow education and career development and help provide a structured research experience leading to scientific independence. Fellows are encouraged to seek out mentors and areas of investigation that are of most interest to them. During the first year of the program, neonatology faculty members actively participate in helping fellows define these interests. Fellows are expected to initially participate in established research projects and then to develop their own project under the guidance of their mentor. It is anticipated that several publications will result from their work.
