abstract
The discipline of bioethics came into being in the early 1970s in the wake of the major societal revolutions of the 1960s and the rapid rise of medical technology. Neonatology was first recognized as a subspecialty within the field of pediatrics in 1975. The extent to which advances in medical technology have transformed the field of neonatology is unmatched by those in any other field. This transformation has, in turn, given rise to ethical dilemmas in neonatal intensive care units with a regularity and intensity equally unmatched. In spite of this, very few fellowships in neonatal-perinatal medicine offer formal education and training in ethics.
