Neonatology Resident Education
The Division of Neonatology at NYU Langone offers a resident rotation in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Tisch Hospital, a Level IV, New York State–designated Regional Perinatal Center that is part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone. Because it is a neonatal–perinatal rotation, residents gain exposure to clinical neonatology in both the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and the delivery room.
In this structured rotating curriculum, residents learn about essential NICU topics through small-group didactics, mock codes, and case and topic presentations. The rotation in the NICU is for first- and second-year residents. First-year residents learn the fundamentals of neonatal care and perform procedures and coordinate care under supervision. Second-year residents continue to work and collaborate with the neonatal physician team and also take on a supervisory role. Attending physicians provide weekly feedback.
The division also offers an elective in the NICU at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue for third-year residents who wish to make neonatology a career. In this elective, residents complete an advanced-level rotation to further expand their medical knowledge, clinical reasoning, and procedural skills in neonatology.
