Why our program could be right for you

The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Program offers an outstanding clinical and educational experience in a collaborative environment. During their training, fellows provide family-integrated, multidisciplinary, evidence-based healthcare to a diverse patient population.  The Montefiore Einstein community offers individualized professional development activities and numerous scholarly activities, preparing fellows with the skills and knowledge needed for successful careers in neonatal-perinatal medicine.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Jack D. Weiler Hospital, Einstein Campus

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Jack D. Weiler Hospital is a state-of-the-art level 4 Regional Perinatal Center (RPC). The unit provides family-integrated, multidisciplinary, evidence-based care to critically ill neonates with complex conditions and carries the distinction of being the only New York State-designated RPC in the Bronx.

I appreciate the ability to express my thoughts and opinions freely without judgment and learn from feedback given by faculty.

A challenging and innovative curriculum

Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellows participate in procedural training and neonatal and infant resuscitation in both the delivery room and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

We strive to balance service with education and autonomy with supervision. Our goal is to optimize fellows’ educational experiences and prepare them for successful careers in neonatology.
