OMI MEX CHOP Seminar in Neonatology

Jul 5, 2022

From June 28 to 30, 2022 the OMI MEX CHOP Seminar in Neonatology took place at the Carlos Slim Foundation in Mexico City, Mexico.

The course was led by Dr. Jason Z. Stoller, a Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, who works at the Division of Neonatology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Faculty also included Dr. Nicolas Bamat, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Attending Physician, and Dr. Dustin Daniel Flannery, Attending Physician/Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, both from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The faculty was concluded by Dr. Guadalupe Cordero González, Chief of the National Institute of Perinatology and Associated Professor of Neonatology.

Faculty provided a compelling schedule that included 11 state-of-the-art lectures, introducing fellows to topics such as Updates in Neonatal Early Onset Sepsis, Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy, and Ventilatory Support in the NICU. Three slots were reserved for fellows’ case presentations, which offered participants the opportunity to share medical cases from their own clinical experiences.

34 fellows from all over Mexico participated in the course and contributed to the success of the three-day seminar.

On Friday, the course ended with a closing ceremony and the distribution of awards.

“Without a doubt, the OMI MEX CHOP Seminar in Neonatology was a huge success, with great attendance and enthusiasm of young medical specialists. Many thanks to our allies and faculty of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the National Institute of Perinatology. We will continue working for a better health system in Mexico.”
