The Future
of Neonatology Gaby Gonzalez
5th period Secondary Education I would like to study at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. To become a neonatologist, it's required to have doctorate degree in medicine or an M.D. Educational

It costs $39,654 to attend plus some additional costs. The prerequisite and major/minor classes both entail biology, chemistry and physics because there is no specific major for neonatology. University of Miami doesn't require a specific GPA but they Career Description A neonatologist works in the NICU and takes care of critically ill newborns. A neonatologist's day consists of doing rounds or caring for the infants in the NICU, updating the parents and the pediatrician and parents on the infants condition, and they are always on call for emergency deliveries 24/7. Most neonatologists either work in a hospital or at a practice. Doctors may not need many people skills with babies but they do to communicate with other doctors and parents. Even though technology is advancing, the use of drugs is also increasing the number of premature births, so the need will be greater. College

University of Miami is located in Coral Gables, Florida.
