Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellow Applicants
Dear Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellow Applicant:
Welcome to the Fellow Applicant's page on the ONTPD website. This site was created to serve as a home for important information and exchange of ideas among NMP fellows, program directors and others interested in neonatology training. We hope this site will prove useful to you as you learn about Neonatology, the ONTPD, and the Section on Perinatal Pediatrics, and, as you navigate through the application process. In addition to information regarding the application process and timeline, links for information regarding board certification and requirements are included. For individuals looking for fellowship openings after the match, we are encouraging programs to list openings at Neonatology on the Web, which is available at the link "Fellowship Opportunities" on this page.
The Section on Perinatal Pediatrics (SoPPe) sponsors and supports our website, and is also a wonderful resource of information and educational materials about neonatology. We urge you to visit the website often and welcome your suggestions for improvement. We are also happy to have your input into ways that the ONTPD council can assist you, so please do not hesitate to contact any of us.
Susan Aucott, MD
ONTPD Chair on behalf of the ONTPD Council
