Neonatology Fellowship Educational Opportunities

Daily

Pediatric Surgery Rounds (NCH NICU)

The NICU and pediatric surgery teams coround on a preselected panel of patients with active surgical issues every weekday morning. Corounding facilitates a cohesive management plan and communication with the family.
