The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine (NPM) Fellowship Training Program at MetroHealth-Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) has been fulfilling its mission successfully since 1985 when it was first accredited by the ACGME. We have now established a new educational and clinical collaboration with Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. Starting July 2022, the new fellows will do two NICU and cardiology-cardiothoracic surgery rotations during their second year of fellowship program. In addition, the fellows will do a 2-week block in the NICHD Neonatal Network Research Clinic to participate in Bayley’s scales of infant developmental assessment. Our broad and robust educational curriculum, exposure to a wide array of patient population, and highly accomplished faculty at the two sites provide a stellar clinical and academic learning environment. Some of the highlights of our curriculum include daily morning report, hands-on bedside teaching, dedicated weekly didactics, simulation workshops, team-based learning, QI projects, development of evidence-based management guidelines, AMA sponsored Moderate Sedation course and ECMO course. Our program ensures that fellows have ample protected time for scholarly activities. The faculty members are actively engaged in mentoring fellow research in both clinical and laboratory-based projects. 

Some of the current research interests of the neonatal faculty include mechanisms of fetal membrane weakening, gut microbiome and Tryptophan Metabolism, neonatal growth, metabolism, and endocrinology, AKI, molecular mechanisms of neonatal kidney development, patient safety and quality, long term follow-up of preterm infants, body composition, and custom maternal breast milk fortification, ROP, and NAS. Starting July 2022, fellows will have an opportunity to choose research mentors from Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital.
