Pediatric EM Fellowship
About the Fellowship
The Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) fellowship program at the Indiana University School of Medicine will offer fellows from both Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine (EM) backgrounds a challenging and diverse training experience that will provide them with skills necessary to become outstanding academic leaders in the field of pediatric emergency medicine.
Goals & Objectives
- Provide a clinical rotation infrastructure that allows ample exposure to a spectrum of pediatric ages, complaints and procedures to develop skill in the assessment and management of pediatric medical and surgical emergencies; utilizing a curriculum that includes comprehensive goals, objectives, evaluation and feedback mechanisms.
- Utilize IUSM PEM, EM-Peds and EM faculty role models to mentor fellows through progressive clinical development while participating in all aspects of the care of acutely ill and injured children.
- Provide fellows ample exposure to a didactic educational curriculum relevant to the practice of pediatric emergency medicine, including topics specific to clinical disease as well as undifferentiated presentations, research, PEM administration, and teaching.
- Develop fellows’ academic skill in critical assessment of PEM medical literature, completion of an individual scholarly project supervised by a qualified mentor, and participation in a comprehensive research curriculum.
