The Children’s Mercy Kansas City Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine (NPM) Fellowship program was established in 1972. Apart from a robust clinical experience and learning, the program aims to train future neonatal scientist. This is done through abundant exposure to clinical, basic science and translational research opportunities. The faculty mentors are committed to see these projects result in publication.
