Looking for a Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship Program?

We are responsible for the evaluation and management of over 70,000 patients per year.


Supervision and education of house staff, while providing high quality care, are the chief goals of the division.  Didactic lectures, small group conferences, and bedside teaching in the Emergency Department provide the house staff with knowledge of the initial management and recognition of critically ill and injured patients.

Clinical workshops teach wound management, suture skills, and splinting techniques.  Residents from the Department of Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, and Community and Family Medicine participate in all levels of care including minor surgical procedures, splinting, and the resuscitation of acutely ill/injured children.
