NMFM Interest Group (Neonatal & Maternal Fetal Medicine)

The Neonatal and Maternal-Fetal Medicine Interest group is looking for you! We offer many opportunities to get to know more about this exciting field, and also some ways to disconnect from medical school. We organize a group called the NICU Cuddle Crew, where each person involved goes into the NICU at OSU and rocks babies in two hour shifts. It is a wonderful opportunity to get one on one time with these special infants and to see how a NICU is run! Additionally, we coordinate with the NICU residents and offer a NICU shadowing program- this offers a unique experience into the birthing/NICU process as you may follow an infant all the way from the delivery room or Operating room up to the NICU and see how their care is begun right from the start! We will have some panels to tell us more about what a day is like for a Neonatologist or MFM doctor, as well as an event at Nationwide Children's Hospital for World Prematurity Day. We look forward to seeing you at our introductory meeting!
