The UPMC Advanced Practice Provider Neonatology Fellowship Program was established in 2015 and is dedicated to advancing UPMC as the premier educational setting for training Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) in Neonatology. Our goal is to train these individuals in the medical knowledge, critical thinking skills, and procedures in neonatal critical care and newborn medicine that will allow them to provide world class clinical care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Our graduates will be prepared to help meet the ongoing demand for mid-level providers in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

The UPMC Advanced Practice Provider Neonatology Fellowship Program curriculum is designed to develop the skills required for competent neonatal critical care including delivery room management, neonatal procedures, and the principles of neonatal management and care. The APP neonatal fellows are employed, paid learners with the goal to provide the fundamental knowledge, critical thinking skills, and technical skills to make appropriate clinical decisions. APP neonatal fellows are being trained as advanced practice providers and not independent practitioners/neonatologists.
