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 2018, our ED's patient volume was more than 80,000, 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.
