Frequently Asked Questions About the Prenatal and Neonatal Fellowship
How many fellow spots are available each year?
Is the program recognized by the ACGME?
Not yet. Prenatal medicine is a budding field within pediatrics as we continue to explore disease processes before they appear in postnatal life. This program is designed for physicians who have completed an ACGME-recognized subspecialty, and are looking to further study the origins of disease processes. This program is internally recognized by the Graduate Medical Education office at Children's National.
What is the fellowship history?
This is a relatively new fellowship at Children's National, as the Division of Prenatal and Transitional Medicine was established in August 2010. Adré J. du Plessis, M.B.Ch.B., the division chief and director of the Prenatal Pediatrics Institute, ran a similar prenatal-focused program for approximately nine years at the Children's Hospital of Boston. In 2018, Sarah Mulkey, M.D., became director of the fellowship program at Children's National.
