Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship Goals and Objectives

The goals of the training program in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina are:
  • to improve the trainee's knowledge and understanding of the pathophysiology and management of clinical problems encountered in neonatal-perinatal care,

  • to provide the foundation for trainees to pursue independent lines of investigation related to that field, and

  • to provide the scientific and analytical foundations needed to make clinical decisions which are evidence-based, informed, and consistent with best practice guidelines.

An immediate, short-term goal is to expand the scientific and clinical expertise of the trainee and provide the foundation 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 well newborns, involvement in discussions concerning therapeutic approaches to the high-risk pregnancy, exposure to basic science and clinical research, instruction in statistics and epidemiology, and "hands on" research experience in a supervised setting.
