Mission


The mission of the Neonatal Perinatal Medicine Fellowship at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies is to train our fellows to become excellent clinicians, teachers, clinical leaders and researchers that 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.

Program Aims

  • To recruit and develop a diverse community of fellows, including those underrepresented in medicine, in order to reflect the growing diversity in our patient population in Central Florida.
  • To train physicians that are first and foremost strong clinicians capable of caring for the most complicated patients and their families.
  • To train future clinical leaders who have the vision and skill to guide their NICUs successfully through change and growth.
  • 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 100% 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 are prepared to enter either a private practice or an academic setting in the State of Florida or elsewhere, and successfully achieve their desired employment by the time of fellowship graduation.
