The Division of Neonatology provides comprehensive care for premature and full-term infants with a complex of neonatal problems. The ICN is a major referral center for term infants with respiratory failure and persistent pulmonary hypertension, perinatal asphyxia, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and complex surgical problems, especially those with congenital diaphragmatic hernia where the survival for uncomplicated cases is greater than 90%. Special services offered in our nursery include high frequency ventilation, nitric oxide, hypothermia for perinatal asphyxia, and comprehensive neonatal health care. We also provide long-term neurodevelopmental follow-up for high-risk infants who are discharged from the intensive care nursery.
The Division of Neonatology, Duke Neonatal Intensive Unit, is a member of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Neonatal Research Network, a consortium of the leading neonatal intensive care units in the country that perform cutting-edge, collaborative clinical research.
The Division benchmarks patient care outcomes with this group of 16 of the leading intensive care nurseries in the country. Our low birth weight mortality and rate of broncho-pulmonary dysplasia and retinopathy of prematurity are consistently among the lowest.
The Division of Neonatology offers a NICHD Sponsored Fellowship Program for pediatricians interested in advanced training in neonatal basic or clinical research. In addition, the Division houses the Jean and George Brumley Jr. Neonatal-Perinatal Research Institute
which includes over 80 investigators at Duke interested in developmental biology and problems of the neonate and fetus.
The Department of Pediatrics, Division of Neonatology and the Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) seek a neonatologist with the training, interest, and expertise to undertake research on issues related to neonatal mortality in developing countries. This individual will be able to leverage existing DGHI field sites for research projects and will have the opportunity to interact with other faculty in the Department of Pediatrics with strong global health interests and expertise.
Candidates should be board certified in Neonatology and have experience working in developing countries. A master's degree in public health or other related field is recommended but not required depending on the candidate’s expertise. An appointment will be made at a level commensurate with qualifications and experience.
