The mission of the University of Florida Neonatal Perinatal Medicine Fellowship at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies is to train our fellows to become excellent clinicians, teachers and clinical researchers who provide compassionate, and state-of-the-art care wherever they serve. The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Program serves the community of Central Florida, delivering care to a diverse population including a large, underserved population, which aligns with the mission of Orlando Health and the University of Florida.

Program Aims:

  • To recruit and develop a diverse community of fellows, including those underrepresented in medicine, to reflect the growing diversity in our patient population in Central Florida
  • To train physicians who are first and foremost strong clinicians capable of caring for the most complicated patients and their families
  • To contribute to scholarly activity in the field of neonatology, by having our fellows develop QI and clinical research projects under the mentorship of the faculty
  • To provide an academic environment that prepares and ensures that 100 percent of our fellows will be successful on the American Board of Pediatrics Neonatal Perinatal Medicine Boards within three years of graduation
  • To train neonatologists who can enter either a private practice or an academic setting in the State of Florida or elsewhere
