Babies born very prematurely often face a lifetime of implications, yet few medical centers offer dedicated programs to train physicians and other health care professionals about the unique needs of neonates with neurological impairments.

UT Southwestern is one of the few that offers this advanced training.

Launched in 2018, UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Fetal and Neonatal Neurology Fellowship Program is currently one of less than five programs of its kind in the world and the sole program in Texas. The program is designed to train child neurologists and neonatologists who want to receive advanced training in neonatal neurology to care for neonates with neurological impairments.

Program Facilities 

Fellows work in multiple facilities during the year-long fellowship. These facilities include:

An Integrated System – Four Hospitals
