Training of Doctors and Nurses in Perinatology

  • Franco Macagno
  • Alfred Tenore


A consideration and comparison of the training of neonatologists in developing and developed countries would be beyond the scope of this chapter because the vast differences which exist would compile enough material to be a book in itself. The reason for this, as one would expect, is that there is hardly anything which may be referred to as a unifying standard of training in developing countries [1]. Unfortunately what is more un-consoling is that there is no unifying standard in developed countries as well.
