Neonatology
Application for Fellowship in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine

The postdoctoral education prerequisite is three years of general pediatric residency training. Candidates should apply through ERAS and enter the Neonatology Match through NRMP. A comprehensive web site for Neonatology fellow applicants is now available at http://www.aap.org/sections/perinatal/ONTPD-Applicants.htm.

In your personal statement please tell us about yourself, your interest in neonatology, long-term plans, and specific fellowship training goals. Applicants must provide letters of recommendation from their Chair of Pediatrics, the Director of Neonatology, and two other faculty members who have worked with them during the past two years. Candidates are required, with rare exception, to visit Buffalo for personal interviews with members of the faculty and to meet with current fellows. Selection criteria will include an excellent residency performance record and goals consistent with those of the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Program.
