A Note from the Directors...

To All Students Interested in the research and clinical Aspects of Newborn Medicine:

You are invited to apply to the Summer Student Research Program sponsored by the Harvard Program in Neonatology, an Academic Program that includes Boston Children's Hospital (BCH) and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC).

    • Observation of newborn care in hospital nurseries, clinics, and NICUs
    • Bench, clinical/translational, or epidemiological research
    • Weekly tutorials
  • Supervision and guidance provided by faculty and fellow mentors
