University of Vermont Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship


The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Program of the University of Vermont College of Medicine is an integrated part of the Pediatric Residency Training Program at UVM Medical Center in Burlington, Vermont.

The Program provides comprehensive training in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine: graduates are well prepared for either academic or clinical practice. The Program is certified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME); successful completion leads to qualification for subspecialty certification in Neonatal Perinatal Medicine.

The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Program has positions for two Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellows. Prospective candidates are encouraged to apply during their second year of pediatric residency. The Fellowship Director, with the aid of the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Faculty, selects from the completed applications those candidates who will be offered an interview. Criteria for acceptance into the NPM Fellowship program are:

  • Successful completion of an ACGME-accredited pediatric residency program (consideration will also be given to outstanding candidates who have completed pediatric residency programs outside of the United States)

  • A commitment to pursue a career in academic or clinical neonatology

  • Excellence in the clinical care of children

  • Strong potential for success in clinical research

Thank you for considering the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Program at UVM Medical Center/University of Vermont.
