Emergency Medicine Fellowship

Program Overview

Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) Fellowship at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.

The mission of our PEM Fellowship program is to educate and support a diverse group of fellows to become outstanding pediatric emergency medicine clinicians and future leaders in the field, who will be equipped to contribute to advancing knowledge and academics, and succeed in balanced, unique and meaningful careers.

The CHP PEM Fellowship is an accredited ACGME program dedicated to the training of fellows in academic pediatric emergency medicine, and is available to both emergency medicine and pediatrics-trained residents. Our program is based at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh (CHP) of the University Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), a consistently named top 10 U.S. News & World Report's Best Children's Hospital. CHP draws patients from a wide radius encompassing western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and northern West Virginia and, also serves as a community hospital for children of the greater Pittsburgh area. As the region's only Level 1 Regional Resource Pediatric Trauma Center and primary pediatric referral facility, most children who have serious illness or injuries in the region are transported to the CHP Emergency Department where more than 80,000 patients are evaluated and treated annually.

The PEM Fellowship program at CHP provides a comprehensive educational experience with emphasis on clinical training, teaching, research and scholarship, and administrative and leadership skills. Our scholarship program also includes a unique focus track experience. We invite you to click on the sites of this webpage to explore and learn more about our PEM Fellowship program.
