Part 6: Essentials of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine fellowship: program administration.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

A successful Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine fellowship (NPM-F) program requires presence and insight of national and institutional supervisory organizations as well as effective program-specific leaders: program director (PD), associate program director (APD), program coordinator (PC), and core faculty. It is becoming more common for PDs and APDs to have advanced training in medical education and conduct medical education research. While NPM-F program leaders benefit from a strong national NPM educator community, they face challenges of increased regulatory burden and unclear national guidelines with variable local interpretation for protected time. National and local organizations can support program leaders and promote their academic success while reducing burnout and turnover by providing leadership training, academic mentoring, and adequate protected time for research and program-specific tasks.
