Emergency Medicine Fellowship
Inside Our Emergency Department
The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital is designed to prepare physicians for an academic career in Pediatric Emergency Medicine.
Our program offers a challenging experience, allowing fellows to progressively acquire the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to provide excellent direct and supervisory emergency care to children.
Fellows are offered a broad experience in all facets of pediatric emergency medicine¸ including clinical care, teaching, research and administration. We accept graduates from both pediatric and emergency medicine residencies.
What You Need to Know
Nationwide Children’s Hospital has one of the busiest pediatric emergency departments in the country. With 62 beds and over 90,000 visits per year, we offer an outstanding clinical experience for trainees. We are a Level I Trauma Center, the first designated as such in the state of Ohio in 1991. We are also a verified Burn Center. We have a close relationship with our Child Advocacy Center and offer a four-year combined Child Abuse/Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship. Our fellows also have the opportunity to practice in a community setting in our satellite Lewis Center location.
We lead one of the six national nodes of the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network. As a result, fellows are exposed to gold standard clinical research during their training.
