Neonatal Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Highlights


The Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship Program at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital is the first ACGME approved community-based fellowship program in the United States. The three-year program is currently approved for two fellows per year and is funded in partnership between Orlando Health and Pediatrix Medical Group of Florida. 

The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship program strives to develop Fellows as clinicians, teachers and researchers capable of transforming the future of neonatal care. We accomplish this by providing fellows with broad educational, clinical and research experiences. The program intentionally maintains a very strong focus on clinical care, while still providing opportunities for pursuing a master’s degree and research and QI projects in a tertiary care setting to meet the ACGME requirement for scholarly activity.

Our teaching hospital, Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies, is a 350-bed hospital delivering approximately 14,000 babies per year, providing an extensive experience for our fellows in the stabilization and resuscitation of the newborn.

The extensive array of services provided at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital results in the referral of the highest risk and most complicated pregnancies. These patients are cared for by our Maternal Fetal Medicine Physicians in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team to ensure the best outcome for mom and baby. The team provides state of the art care including fetal surgery. WPH is the first-and-only-facility in the Southeast United States to perform in utero surgery to repair spina bifida. Fellows will round with the Maternal Fetal Medicine team during their first and second years.

Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital is home to our 142 Bed Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, one of the largest and most technologically advanced NICUs in the nation. The NICU has received a number of Awards and Recognitions:
