The Section of Pediatric Emergency Medicine trains
All students' and residents' clinical schedules and rotations allow for attendance of our monthly case-based, open discussion PEM Teaching Conference. The conferences include presentations from a PEM Attending, a PEM Fellow, and a Senior Pediatric Resident and discuss different cases and issues that present in the ED.
The ED has 24-hour attending physician coverage. All attendings are board certified or board eligible in pediatric emergency medicine. The attending staff is dedicated to bedside teaching and overall supervision geared to the level of training and the background of each of our trainees. Moreover, the PEM faculty is committed to teaching in a variety of areas including the medical student core lecture series, the resident core lecture series, and Pediatric Advanced Life Support classes. Attendings also participate in regional lecture series for emergency medicine residency training for family medicine residents, emergency medical services personnel, as well as pediatric and emergency medicine staff physicians. The ED welcomes other attending and staff physicians wishing to spend time in the pediatric emergency setting to further their education or skills in the management of acutely ill or injured pediatric patients.
