A first of its kind fellowship in hemodynamics

Few places in the world offer fellowship level training focused entirely on hemodynamic care for the neonate. The University of Iowa program is the first of its kind in the United States, patterned after the pioneering work done at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children and other medical centers in Canada.

This one-year neonatal hemodynamics fellowship provides capstone training for an individual who has completed a traditional fellowship in neonatology. 

  • It exposes the fellow to an extremely broad range of neonates—including some of the world’s smallest—in one of the country’s premier centers for neonatal care. 
     
  • It focuses on refining the specialist’s expertise in imaging and testing to better understand the heart and circulatory system of individual patients and tailor their care based on each patient’s unique characteristics. 
     
  • It prepares this unique specialist to become a leader in establishing similar programs in centers around the world, helping the profession overall improve its care and understanding of the hemodynamics of neonates.
