Fellowship in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine
If you've completed a pediatric residency program, our specialized fellowship program can help you develop additional skills to manage critically ill newborns and become a neonatologist.

We offer a rewarding three-year Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship training program to physicians who have completed an accredited pediatric residency program. The fellowship trains 12 physicians to develop the skills necessary to manage critically ill newborns and become neonatologists. Our fellows rotate through the NICUs at Cohen Children’s and North Shore University Hospital throughout their three years. Both locations are regional perinatal centers recognized by the New York Department of Health as providers of comprehensive care to pregnant women and their babies.

Fellows also provide clinical support to newborns on transport and in the high risk neonatal follow-up clinic. The team works alongside neonatal nurse practitioners, attending neonatologists, hospitalists and maternal-fetal medicine physicians. Fellows also play a critical role in the education of residents in the general pediatrics program at Cohen Children’s Medical Center and North Shore University Hospital.
