We serve a 40-bed outborn unit at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, a level IV facility, as well as a 35-bed inborn unit at Hutzel Women’s Hospital, a level III facility. There are opportunities for clinical and laboratory research. We have been members of the NICHD Neonatal Research Netowrk since its inception in 1985. We also have a NIH funded Perinatal Research Branch located at Hutzel Women’s Hospital.

All call with be with additional house staff, fellows, or neonatal nurse practitioners. Additionally, all faculty attend at least one national conference in addition to any conference where their research is being presented.

Ideal candidates will have experience working in a level IV unit.

The Neonatologists are a very cohesive group and have developed multiple clinical pathways very collaboratively. We hold case discussions every week so that input of all faculty can be obtained. We have excellent fellows, all of whom perform research and QI projects. The pediatric training program is large and very stable; the pediatric chairman and both hospital administrations are very supportive of the division of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine.
