Neonatal Perinatal Medicine Fellowship

Program Overview

The training program in neonatal-perinatal medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina is a three-year program during which the subspecialty resident will gain competency in the management of neonates with various disorders, medical and surgical, requiring neonatal intensive care. Additionally, the trainee will develop an understanding of the pathophysiological basis of common clinical problems encountered in neonatal-perinatal medicine and develop the scientific and analytical foundations required to make clinical decisions which are evidence-based and informed. Finally, the trainee will develop the foundation of scholarship upon which future clinical and scientific growth can be based.

To address these goals, the training program provides education and experience in the clinical management of sick and recovering newborns, involvement in discussions concerning therapeutic approaches to the high-risk pregnancy, basic science and clinical research, instruction in statistics and epidemiology, and "hands on" academic experience in a supervised setting.

Visa Requirements: While the program can accommodate applicants with J-1 visas, we are unable to accommodate applicants with H1b visas.


In addition to the overall benefit package offered by the Department of Pediatrics, the Division of Neonatology offers the following benefits to its residents and fellows.

  • Support towards educational travel (national and regional meetings)
  • $300 book fund
