Pediatric Emergency Medicine Division

The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine has six full time BC/BE 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 census is 25,000 with a 10 percent admission rate. The division is fully integrated within our successful emergency medicine department, with strong ties to the department of pediatrics. We provide didactic and bedside teaching of pediatric emergency medicine to both the pediatric and emergency medicine residents. Some of our current research projects include the treatment of pediatric anaphylaxis, the use of positive airway pressure for patients with asthma, and the use of simulation to augment resident education.
