Fellows must complete a research project. Fellows spend 21 months of their time in fellowship completing one or more scholarly projects. The fellow may choose a research mentor from among members of the faculty of the Division of Neonatology, other subspecialty divisions in the Department of Pediatrics, or other faculty at UConn Health or UConn School of Medicine. For fellows interested in basic laboratory project, a vast selection of research faculty members and laboratory facilities exist at the medical school.

We encourage fellows to attend a regional and/or national research conference during the first year. During the second or third years, fellows are encouraged to present their research at regional and/or national conferences.
