Target Audience and Needs

Physicians, residents, fellows, physician assistants, and nurses in a pediatric or neonatology specialty need to be updated on topics related to the clinical management of the neonate. Topics rotate on an 18-month cycle and cover all aspects of perinatal physiology. Participants should be able to discuss the topic presented in general terms, assess the management of ventilated neonates, detect common nutritional issues, manage fluids and electrolytes, and integrate information reviewed to update for recertification.

Educational Methods

Educational methods will include lectures and case presentations.


At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:

  • Apply clinical assessment skills to care for the critically ill and/or premature infant.
  • Evaluate growth failure in premature infants and manage appropriately.
  • Manage fluid and electrolyte problems in the neonate.
  • Integrate the information reviewed in the grand rounds to update knowledge for recertification.


Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
