IFUP Clinic:

Fellows attend eight half-day sessions per year in the Infant Follow-up Program, which provides care to high-risk infants who have graduated from one of the participating NICUs in the Division of Newborn Medicine. Here, fellows' responsibilities include i) performance of a medical history and physical examination; ii) summary and coordination of the care provided for their patients during the visit across professional disciplines (for example, psychology, occupational therapy and physical therapy); iii) referral to other specialists (for example, neurology or ophthalmology); iii) reliable written and verbal communication and advocacy with outside care agencies (for example, social services, early intervention programs and schools) and other consultants; iv) identification of potential barriers to access to care (for example, financial difficulties in attending further follow-up assessments); and v) resolution of those problems.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
