“I chose UT Southwestern for my training in Fetal and Neonatal Neurology (FNN) as the Neuro NICU program was already so well established under the leadership of Dr. Lina Chalak. I received excellent faculty mentorship in terms of both my research and clinical training. The volume of clinical consults is extremely high compared to other centers and that afforded me the opportunity to have exposure to many types of common and rare pathology. I love that the UT Southwestern FNN program focuses on multidisciplinary care, from the collaborations with MFM to ensure the highest level of care for both mom and fetus, all the way to the high-risk infant follow-up clinics which provide holistic support for the entire family unit. I found not only the faculty, but the UTSW leadership as well were extremely supportive in terms of my personal academic mission and career goals. I am so happy with my decision to have trained here.”

“The NeuroNICU Fellowship at UT Southwestern is an outstanding program in every regard. The teaching and exposure to clinical care is diverse and thorough, making one prepared for all aspects of NeuroNICU care. The faculty is incredibly supportive and invested in the success of you as a person and as a physician. The mentorship is above none, as all doors are opened in this well connected and influential group. I would choose this program over and over again.”
