To promote the choice of an academic career in neonatology
"There's really no evidence that feeding with one bottle over another will make a difference" for better nutrition or any health issues, says Jatinder Bhatia , professor and chief of neonatology at Georgia Health Sciences University in Augusta, Ga., and chairman of the American Academy of Pediatric's nutrition committee.
Because teaching and communication are integral parts of a career in academic neonatology, we require that fellows participate in seminars offered by the Offices of Faculty and Professional Development at CHOP and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine designed to foster these skills.
