The Fellowship in Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM), accredited through the American Board of Pediatrics and ACGME, is a specialized training program designed to provide and refine knowledge and skills regarding the care of acutely ill and injured children. Candidates must complete a three-year residency in General Pediatrics or Emergency Medicine to be eligible.
The fellowship program is three years for Pediatrics-trained residents and two years for EM-trained residents. The fellowship trains physicians to provide compassionate, evidenced-based, up-to-date emergency care for children. We provide didactic and bedside teaching of pediatric emergency medicine to pediatric and emergency medicine residents as well as medical students. All interested Pediatric or EM residents are welcomed and encouraged to apply.
Mount Sinai’s PEM fellowship was initiated in 2004 and currently accepts two fellows per year. Mount Sinai participates in the NRMP Match. The deadline for completed applications is August 15th and is conducted through ERAS.
Graduating fellows have taken academic positions in institutions such as Montefiore Medical Center, New York University Medical Center, the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, The Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, Hackensack University Medical Center, and the Mount Sinai Health System.
