Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship

The Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) Fellowship prepares physicians to be future leaders in the field of pediatric emergency medicine. The curriculum provides the skills to excel in clinical care, teaching, administration and research.

The Emergency Department has 55 part- and full-time faculty who are active in research and teaching. The ED receives over 100,000 visits per year. In fall 2010, a second emergency department was added in the most medically underserved part of Washington, D.C. Children's National Emergency Department is a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center with active trauma services and an integrated Division of Transport Medicine. The PEM faculty members conduct multi-institutional research through Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) and other research networks.
