Meet 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.
