The Neonatology Division, through the Neonatal Outreach Program, keeps in contact with referring physicians through regular communication via our print newsletter, a new electronic newsletter, as well as phone and in-person interactions.
Our print newsletter, Neonatology Update, spotlights new programs and services for neonates at CHOP and throughout our affiliate hospitals. Our e-newsletter, Neonatology News, offers short updates about key programs, personnel and milestones with links to learn more.
Our hope is that the clinical and research advances in neonatology we share may be of interest to you in the management of your patients.
