Neonatololgy - NICU 548


Internal Medicine Clerkship


University of Maryland Hospital

Description and Goals:

The goal of a rotation in neonatology is to allow the student to learn the fundamentals of neonatal pathophysiology and aid in understanding the total care of the normal newborn, the problems of the sick and immature newborn, and current methods of treatment. During the rotation, the student will serve as primary caretaker, under close supervision, allowing students to gain first-hand knowledge of neonatal disease and acquire skills for procedures and resuscitation. During this rotation, students will receive both bedside and didactic teaching of neonatology. At the end of the rotation, the student will be expected to prepare a discussion on an area of neonatal medicine that interests the student. Sub-interns will take call every fourth to fifth night with a third year resident and neonatology fellow. During the rotation, Dr. Lewin, Sub-I Director, meets with all Sub-I's either on Wednesday or Thursday at 3:30 p.m. in her office for case conference.
