Program Description

The National Capital Consortium (NCC)/Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) Fellowship in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine is a military-sponsored, military-supported training program. It accepts applications/trainees from all services. The program was established in 1980 and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Pediatrics Review Committee (RC). In the summer of 2011, the National Naval Medical Center and Walter Reed Army Medical Center completed the Congressionally mandated merger and became Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC). The goal of the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Program is to train pediatricians for a career in Neonatology. This is accomplished through didactic and experiential training in the clinical, research, and administrative aspects of Neonatology. Upon completion of the program, fellows are eligible for certification by the American Board of Pediatrics, Sub-Board of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine.
