Advanced Fellowship in Neonatal and Infant Feeding Disorders

Advanced Fellowship in Neonatal and Infant Feeding Disorders

The Neonatal and Infant Feeding Disorders Fellowship is a one year, advanced program targeted to understanding the mechanisms of developmental gastrointestinal motility and neonatal and infant feeding disorders.

This one year advanced fellowship is a unique, one-of-a-kind fellowship. The fellowship will take place within the Neonatal and Infant Feeding Disorders Program, which was founded at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in 2002 by Dr. Sudarshan Jadcherla.

This multidisciplinary program is one of the only programs in the United States targeted to understanding the mechanisms of developmental gastrointestinal motility and neonatal and infant feeding disorders. Through the understanding of the normal and dysfunctional mechanisms, this knowledge has paved the way for implementing and improving therapeutic approaches in the vulnerable NICU population.

Our team consists of physicians, APNs, nurses, research associates and research assistants.

At the end of the fellowship, fellows will be able to:

  • Understand the normal process of gastrointestinal transit time from mouth to anus
  • Understand the development and maturation of normal physiologic functions including suck and swallow, esophageal transit, gastric emptying, small bowel and colonic transit and defecation
  • Identify the clinical signs and symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease, feeding intolerance, aerodigestive disorders, and gastrointestinal dysmotility
