Emergency Department

The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) is made up of 20 Pediatric Emergency Medicine physicians actively involved in pediatric resident education in various forums:

  • Teaching of direct clinical care in a high volume urban emergency department (ED). In Fiscal Year 2011, our  ED's patient volume was more than 77,000, and it increases each year. Residents learn the approach and initial management to a patient with acute illness often with one-on-one teaching from the PEM faculty.
  • Formal didactics on core general pediatric topics with a focus on initial assessment and management.
  • Independent Learning opportunities:
    • Online modules on core ED topics
    • Monthly high-impact educational session: simulation training, case-based discussions, and hands-on procedural practice
    • Simulation-Based Learning are facilitated by many of the faculty in the division of PEM.
