Neonatal-perinatal medicine fellows are encouraged to teach and develop their teaching styles in many environments. We offer multiple opportunities for teaching, with a different mix of pediatric trainees and patient populations in each unique teaching environment. Residents from all three years of training participate in care at University Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital, while senior residents care for tertiary patients in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Cincinnati Children’s.
Fellows also interact closely with nurse practitioners on various care teams and are looked to as leaders of the clinical team. Teaching and learning opportunities occur frequently in interactions with neonatal nurse practitioners, nurses, respiratory therapists and the extensive ancillary staff found in each unit.
Fellows have the opportunity to teach their peers and the neonatology faculty by presenting at neonatal grand rounds and giving annual research-in-progress updates. Fellows also have the opportunity to help and teach their peers during orientation at the start of fellowship training.
