The Neonatal Nutrition Practicum is designed for dietitians who are new to the neonatal setting. The program includes on-site experience in the Newborn/Infant Intensive Care Unit (N/IICU) and the Clinical Nutrition Department at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Participants interact with CHOP staff including neonatal dietitians, neonatologists, surgeons, speech therapists and lactation consultants during lectures and daily multidisciplinary care rounds.
Enrollment is limited to four to six dietitians for each one-week practicum, held annually. The next available session is May 6-10, 2019.
