Hi Arianna,

The education and training required for either of those positions require graduation from medical school, which requires you to get a bachelors degree and then graduating from medical school. After completion of medical school, you will need to complete a residency in either obgyn or pediatrics for neonatology. For neonatology, you will need to complete a fellowship in neonatology after completion of your residency.

You will need a bachelor's degree in sciences then move to medical school

After then you will apply for residency in ob gyn and then subspecialize in neonatology.

Good luck with your efforts to join a great professional opportunity

Complete an Undergraduate Degree Program. Pursue a four-year undergraduate degree, such as a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology. Students may consider taking courses in biology, chemistry and anatomy, which provide a foundation of education for medical school and human health.
