In the spotlight
TECaN District III Representative.
University of Maryland Medical Center
Dr. Mascoll-Robertson was born and raised in the beautiful sunlit Island of Barbados. She obtained her Medical Degree from The University of the West Indies (U.W.I) in 2004.
After completing medical internship in 2005, she enrolled in post graduate training in pediatrics at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados. In 2011 Dr. Mascoll-Robertson completed pediatric residency training at Flushing Hospital Medical Center in Queens, New York and became an American Board Certified Pediatrician. She moved to Maryland in June 2011, and presently works at The University of Maryland Medical Center where she is pursuing a pediatric subspecialty fellowship in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine, which she hopes to complete in 2014. Dr. Mascoll-Robertson is also the District III representative, and sits on the executive council of The American Academy of Pediatrics, Trainees and Early Career Neonatologists Group (TECaN).
In 2008, the AAP Section on Perinatal Pediatrics sought to develop leaders among young neonatologists. Drs. Judy Aschner and Linda J. Van Marter engaged a focus group of post-residency training fellows in neonatology, who shared their ideas of a group which would cater to the career and life of young physicians in neonatology. SoPPe now has a group for trainees and early career neonatologists (within 7 years of their fellowship completion), TECaN.

There is much to learn from any clinical investigative initiative. Whether successful or uncompleted, each process is a learning one. These recent JAMA articles focus on ethical and logistical aspects about the clinical trials by analyzing the research process, from design to reporting.
Featured App - NICU Nutrition Calculator
