The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship is an accredited ACGME program dedicated to the training of fellows in academic pediatric emergency medicine. Our fellowship is available to both emergency medicine and pediatrics-trained residents.
The Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) Fellowship training program is based at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, a member of the University Pittsburgh Medical Center. The Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh (CHP) of UPMC 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 the primary pediatric referral facility in the region, most children who have serious illness or injuries in the region are transported to the CHP Emergency Department where more than 75,000 patients are evaluated and treated annually. Thus, the catchments area and census expose fellows to a wide variety of clinical problems and disease states.
The PEM Fellowship training program at CHP provides a comprehensive educational experience with emphasis on clinical care, teaching, administrative and leadership skills, and research.
