The goal of the MGH newborn rotation is to expose first year residents to the well baby care and develop their ability to evaluate newborns and counsel new families. The rotation is based in a busy urban newborn nursery with a large referral obstetrical service. Frequent teaching sessions are provided by members of the newborn hospitalist service on topics such as rashes, circumcisions, septic risk evaluation, breastfeeding, hypoglycemia, and anticipatory guidance after leaving the hospital. In addition to caring for well newborns, interns will attend deliveries to learn the basics of neonatal resuscitation, a skill set that is further developed in our rotation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
