Neonatal Medicine

Looking for a Neonatal Medicine Fellowship Program?

The University of Louisville Division of Neonatal Medicine is composed of board certified neonatal-perinatal specialists engaged in clinical care, education, and research.  The neonatal division is made up of 20 neonatologists, 25 Neonatal nurse practitioners, 8 fellows, a Neonatal Follow-up Program, a PhD Clinical Psychologist, and 3 administrative staff.  Neonatologists are available for prenatal and postnatal consultation, attendance at high-risk delivery, ongoing patient care and routine newborn care at the request of pediatricians or obstetricians.  These physicians are on the medical staff of and care for infants at 10 Kentucky and Indiana hospitals.

Norton Children's Hospital

The Division of Neonatal Medicine physicians direct the level four Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery at Norton Children's Hospital.

A full range of neonatal intensive care services, including neonatal and pediatric surgery, heart surgery, nitric oxide therapy, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation are available at Norton Children's Hospital.  A high-level transport service brings babies to Norton Children's Hospital from southern Indiana and throughout Kentucky.   The Division of Neonatal Medicine physicians also direct the level three Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery at the University of Louisville Hospital.

Around the State

In addition to providing neonatal care in the Louisville area, the Division of Neonatal Medicine physicians also direct Neonatal Intensive Intensive Care Nurseries at Owensboro Medical Center in Owensboro, Kentucky, at Baptist Health Paducah in Paducah, Kentucky and at Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.  Providing neonatal care in Paducah, Owensboro, and Elizabethtown allows for greater options in newborn care for infants and their families.  In many cases, this allows babies to be kept close to their homes, families and primary care physicians. 

After the NICU

In addition, the division also includes a Neonatal Follow Up Program that provides developmental care and evaluation for those infants most at risk. Depending on the needs of the child, infants are seen only a short time or until school age. The program’s staff  includes neonatologists, a developmental psychologist, clinical nurse specialist, and physical, occupational and speech therapists. These specialists have specific knowledge and interest in high risk infant development.

Academics

The division participates in exciting research to improve the care for the tiniest and/or sickest of infants. The education and training of future physicians is of utmost importance to the division which participates actively in medical student and resident education and maintains a fellowship program. Continuing education is a high priority for the division, with the faculty participating in many local, regional, national, and international scientific and educational presentations.

The Neonatal Fellowship at the University of Louisville is a three-year ACGME accredited program divided into clinical service rotations and research. Clinical service rotations are split between Norton Children’s Hospital level IV NICU and the University of Louisville Hospital level III NICU. Fellows have the opportunity to see patients in the Neonatal High-Risk Follow-Up outpatient clinic in the state-of-the-art Novak Center for Children's Health, and they also accompany the "Just for Kids" Transport Team during the transport of critically ill infants.

Time is dedicated to clinical and laboratory research and outcomes research.  Fellows in the Neonatal Fellowship Program will use this time for reading, independent study in the sub-specialty area, and preparing for lectures and teaching. The Neonatal Fellowship's link to basic sciences is considered a crucial and mandatory element of training.
