• Seven faculty members who are fellowship-trained in pediatric EM
  • More than 30,000 pediatric EM patient visits yearly at Mount Sinai
  • Year-round pediatric exposure with several dedicated rotations

Seven knowledgeable and highly experienced fellowship-trained attendings comprise the faculty of our pediatric curriculum. They teach, supervise, and provide our residents with well-rounded exposure to pediatric care and to patients of all ages.

Rotations at Elmhurst Hospital Center as well as in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at The Mount Sinai Hospital are essential to developing our residents' expertise in treating acutely ill pediatric patients through all stages of their illnesses. We dedicate several emergency medicine rotations to pediatric emergency medicine, and all EM rotations during the 3rd and 4th years include shifts in the Pediatric Emergency Department at Mount Sinai.

Mount Sinai's pediatric ED sees more than 30,000 patients yearly, including many subspecialty patients from the transplant, hematology/oncology, metabolic, and endocrinology services. Residents also treat pediatric patients during their orthopedics rotation. A pediatric elective and Senior Specialty Track are also available to interested residents.
