At Emory University, we have an excellent Pediatric Emergency Medicine training program that prepares graduates to care for the full spectrum of acutely ill and injured pediatric patients. Our fellows staff 2 high-volume (>140,000 visits/year combined), high-acuity emergency departments, including the only level I pediatric trauma center in the state. Our facilities are part of one of the largest pediatric healthcare systems in the country and boast a full complement of subspecialty disciplines. We have a dedicated pediatric air and ground transport team servicing a catchment area of the entire state of Georgia and approximately 5000 patients/year. We provide a graded approach to autonomy for our fellows, with supervision by an exceptional faculty group.
Fellows rotate through our pediatric emergency departments and complete core rotations in pediatric anesthesia, pediatric critical care, pediatric orthopedics and sports medicine, and child advocacy and protection. Fellows also complete rotations in toxicology, adult emergency medicine, emergency ultrasound, emergency medical services and trauma – these rotations are available through our collaboration with the Emory Department of Emergency Medicine (in which many of our PEM faculty hold secondary appointments) and based at Grady Memorial Hospital, a large level I trauma center affiliated with Emory University. In the second and third years of training, fellows have dedicated research time and time to pursue chosen elective experiences.
Our trainees also benefit from a comprehensive didactic curriculum, monthly simulation sessions, interdisciplinary seminars, work-life balance themed events, and opportunities for research collaborations within our division, the Department of Pediatrics and Emory University as a whole.
