Footnotes to Subspecialty/Theme Codes


The subspecialty category, Neonatology General, will be divided between four themes. These categories have been chosen to broadly divide the general neonatal abstracts into workable subcategories. This change will improve the quality of the review process and develop these very strong neonatal platform sessions. 

Thus, if you choose Neonatology General, please select one of these THEMES even if you feel the theme title does not exactly capture the content of your abstract.

  • Clinical Trials: Neonatal Medicine

  • Neonatal Patient-Oriented Research

  • Neonatal Disease-Oriented Research

  • CTSA  Pediatric Clinical Translational Research


Investigators who choose one of the following supspecialties should strongly consider selecting theme Neonatal Disease-Oriented Research or theme Neonatal Patient-Oriented Research in addition to the subspecialty:

  • Neonatal Infectious Diseases

  • Neonatal and Fetal Nutrition & Metabolism 

  • Neonatal Neurology

  • Neonatal Pulmonology
