Welcome to the Swiss Society of Neonatology
After more than 24 years of regular meetings of the Swiss Neonatology Group, the Swiss Society of Neonatology was founded in 1995. The society's goals are to foster neonatology in Switzerland, improve the quality of neonatal care and represent the interests of newborn infants in the public.
After more than 20 years of monthly publications of Cases of the Month, the SSN continues to publish interesting and well illustrated case reports on an irregular basis. Subscribe today and stay informed. You can also submit cases of your own!
