    I am interested in going into Neonatology. I know that this involves a peds residency as well as a fellowship. What I am wondering is how I can prepare for all of this during medical school so that I will have the best chance possible to match in these programs (i.e. what do I have to be sure to do well in etc.).

    Any help and info about these particular programs would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    I am also trying to get into a great pediatric program (then neonatal later), but from what I've heard just do well in your classes and do well on your boards. I guess if you also know where you want to do your residency, you can start finding out the type of scores/grades/requirements they need. I am looking for more info but that's all I've heard so far.

    Residency is a life-time away right now, I am trying to focus on getting into a medical program.

    Good Luck
