Course description

In recent years, a lot of effort has gone into developing a national online course in neonatology as a replacement for course-based education in this area. The intended benefits of such e-learning include:

  • Timing of education can be better aligned with the actual neonatology internship
  • Mutual discussion, interaction and exchange between AIOS possible
  • Collaboration assignments between AIOS possible
  • More efficient (education is not given by several neonatologists in several places at the same time)
  • More uniformity in education
  • Make better use of the specific expertise of the NICU centers
