UPMC Advanced Practice Provider Neonatology Residency Program

The UPMC Advanced Practice Provider (APP) Neonatology Residency Program trains certified advanced practice providers in the medical knowledge, critical thinking skills, and procedures in neonatal critical care and newborn medicine.

The program will be expanding with a site at UPMC Hamot for 2018-2019. The APP residents will do training at UPMC Hamot as well as the UPMC facilities in Pittsburgh. Applicants will be accepted into positions for the site at UPMC Hamot. Please contact the program director, Briana Kost, PA-Ckostb@mail.magee.edu, for more information. 

The 12-month training program accepts up to three students per year.

The Neonatology Residency curriculum is a combination of:
