Emergency Medicine Fellowship



Thirteen months are devoted to patient care in the Emergency Department. Pediatric fellows work side by side with pediatric emergency medicine sub-specialists managing acute patients, supervising residents from seven different pediatric and emergency medicine training programs, and learning management skills to oversee a busy ED.

Additional rotations:

  • 2 months Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
  • 1 month Adult Emergency Medicine
  • 1 month Adult Trauma
  • 1 month Toxicology
  • 1 month Wound Management
  • 1 month Anesthesiology
  • 1 month Emergency Medical Services
  • 1 month Ultrasound

Remaining months are devoted to clinical electives such as sports medicine and child protection, and to the completion of an individual research project.


The academic program includes 4 hours of protected clinical conference time every week. The PEM Fellows’ Conference is presented by the fellows, PEM faculty, and speakers who are invited from other divisions to discuss a broad range of medical topics. Journal club, journal watch, simulation work, code review, and professional development talks are incorporated into the clinical conferences. All fellows have an opportunity to attend major national scientific meetings.
