The training program in neonatal-perinatal medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina has been developed to guide the fellow to competency in the management of neonates with various disorders, medical and surgical, requiring neonatal intensive care. Fellows 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 evidence-based and informed clinical decisions. Fellows also will develop the foundation of scholarship upon which future clinical and scientific growth can be based.
