Prerequisites for Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship

Candidates for the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine (NPM) Fellowship Program are required to have three years of pediatric residency training in the United States, Canada or equivalent training in a recognized program in other countries. Eligibility for certification by the American Board of Pediatrics is usually required, but may be waived in extraordinary circumstances. However, candidates who join the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Program directly will not be eligible to take the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Board Examinations until they have been certified by the American Board of Pediatrics in General Pediatrics.
