Tulane Neonatology contributes daily to undergraduate and graduate medical education through student and resident rotations. In addition, the group participates in continuing medical education routinely through presentations at local and national scientific meetings and educational workshops. The group also participates in staff training in the Lakeside and Lakeview Regional Medical Center NICUs.

The Neonatology group is invested in patient safety and clinical quality improvement education through mentoring of student and resident projects, design and delivery of resident safety and quality curriculum, and faculty development in patient safety and quality improvement methodologies. The Tulane Neonatology group benchmarks clinical outcomes of their patients through the Vermont Oxford Network (VON).  The VON Database encompasses data from nearly 1,000 centers around the globe that voluntarily submit data about the care and outcomes of high-risk newborn infants.
