Residents Lecture Series

Welcome to the Residents Lecture Series, an important part of NICUniversity.org. The Residents' Lecture Series was developed to meet the needs of Neonatology Residents and Fellows by filling the informational gap created by changes in the RRC requirements and new work-hour regulations that resulted in fewer hours available for education by program faculty. The Residents Lecture Series provides an alternative method to obtain new information by making it available online where it can be accessed at anytime and fit into everyone's busy schedule.

The overarching goal of the Resident Lecture Series is to help Neonatology Residents and Fellows become expert clinicians by providing information targeted to your career needs. Each course will have an exam and provide participants with a Certificate of Completion.
