Mount Sinai Hospital In Collaboration with National Neonatology Forum, India
Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, Canada offers a Neonatology Departmental Fellowship program for Canadian-trained or internationally trained pediatricians who are looking for additional training in Neonatology.
Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto is a world-renowned academic health science center with a commitment to excellence in medicine, teaching, and research. Mount Sinai Hospital’s Women’s and Infants’ Health Program is one of the top women’s care centers in the world. The NICU at Mount Sinai Hospital consists of a 62-bed unit specializing in Level III neonatal care: it provides care for newborn infants who require assisted ventilation, intravenous nutrition, intensive cardio-respiratory monitoring and / or close nursing and medical care. Functional echocardiography, point-of-care ultrasound, near-infrared spectroscopy are additional bedside technologies used in the care of these critically ill infants. The Department of Paediatrics also provides coverage to an inpatient Level I Nursery, a Neonatal Follow-up clinic, and a Neonatal Ambulatory Clinic. The Labour and Delivery department averages 7500 deliveries per year and the NICU has over 1100 admissions per year: about 300 of these admissions are for newborns less than 1500g. The number of admissions and turnover of patients facilitate the exposure to multiple neonatal diagnoses for the training of physicians. Our proximity to the Hospital for Sick Children makes us a dedicated hospital for deliveries of patients with complex congenital anomalies: the NICU team at Mount Sinai Hospital has developed tremendous experience in the resuscitation of such newborns. Through the medical care, opportunities will arise for work on clinical, research projects or quality improvement initiatives.
Fellowship positions are guaranteed for at least one year. Internationally trained physicians are required to undergo a PEAP (Pre-Entry Assessment Program) evaluation after 3 months of fellowship. The fellowship program could be extended for another year based on our assessment of the performance of the fellow during the first year. The positions are based at Mount Sinai Hospital and are primarily clinical/quality improvement and research work in our NICU in both junior and senior capacities depending on the departmental fellow’s skills. The departmental fellow will also provide some Labor and Delivery Room/Neonatal Resuscitation coverage, as well as on-call coverage under the supervision of an attending staff neonatologist. Our service also includes some coverage in the Level I nursery and Neonatal Ambulatory Clinic. A month of elective placement can be arranged for other areas of interest.
The Neonatology Departmental Fellowship Program at Mount Sinai Hospital provides a certificate of completion to the fellows at the end of his training stating that the physician has completed the program in which physician was enrolled. Applications are invited for starting the program from July 1, 2022, subject to completion of all paperwork and obtaining educational license from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.
