The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine has nine full-time, board certified Pediatric Emergency Medicine faculty dedicated to the care of children. We have an established ACGME-accredited, three-year Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship program. Our annual patient volume is 30,000 with a 10 percent admission rate. The Division is fully integrated within our Emergency Medicine Department with strong ties to the departments of Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine.
We provide didactic and bedside teaching of pediatric emergency medicine to Pediatric, Emergency Medicine, and Family Medicine residents, as well as fourth-year medical student sub-interns. We have highly successful faculty dedicated to ultrasound, simulation, community outreach, research, and education.
The Pediatric Emergency Department is the resource center for all pediatric emergencies within The Mount Sinai Hospital. It is staffed with fellowship trained specialists in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Our Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship program is very competitive and trains the future leaders in the field. The Pediatric ED is committed to caring for children in the most stressful of times and thus has invested in providing the best trained clinicians and support staff including Child Life Specialists whose role is to advocate for patient care and liaise between care providers, and patients and their families. In 2015, the pediatric ED moved into a new space designed to maximize the care of our children.
