Neonatal fellowship program
Preparing highly-motivated NICU physicians for careers as scientists, teachers and clinicians.
The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine is a three-year, ACGME-accredited program that provides exceptional training opportunities and experience in clinical care, research and teaching. Not all of our graduates have chosen to pursue full-time academic careers, but they are uniformly strengthened by the training experiences, tools and teaching they received for whatever professional path they chose.
We are proud of our graduates and the fact that over the past 15 years they have all not only passed Neonatal Boards on the first attempt but have gone on to leadership positions in clinical care, research and education reflecting both who they are and the training they received.
