Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Program

Research Opportunities

In addition to clinical training, fellows participate in academic activity to contribute to the fund of knowledge in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine. Fellows gain experience in and an appreciation for scholarly activity and fulfill requirements for board certification. Academic activities may involve clinical or basic science research projects, development of educational tools, or an extensive critical topical review in the order of a Cochrane report and must result in the production of a scholarly product, e.g. first author paper, progress report, etc.



There are many opportunities for fellows to present their scholarly work at local, regional and national meetings:

1. Southern Society of Pediatric Research

2. LSU Department of Pediatrics Research Day

3. LSUHSC Forum for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety

4. Louisiana State Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics
