Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Nationwide Children’s and The Ohio State University celebrate and learn from our diverse workforce. We view diversity as the uniqueness each of us contributes to achieving our shared mission and goals. We recognize and value different perspectives, characteristics, experiences and attributes of each individual in creating an environment where we thrive on and benefit from our differences.

We have also demonstrated ourselves as leaders in reporting bias and microaggressions in the work environment. We have a unique anonymous reporting system, The Bias Reporting Portal.

For more information about diversity, equity and inclusion, contact Director of DEI Jordee Wells, MD, MPH.

Continuing Medical Education/Maintenance of Continuing Certification (MOC)

Our division publishes bimonthly newsletters providing free CME and MOC opportunities. In addition, PediaCast CME is hosted by one of our own faculty, Dr. Mike Patrick.

Prehospital Education

In the community, we provide ongoing education on prehospital care and emergency medical services. Our division works closely with the EMS Program to bring lectures and simulation programs to the entire central Ohio area.

For more information about the EMS Program, contact EMS Director Beth Bulbolz, MD.

Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship

The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship Program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital is designed to prepare physicians for an academic career in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Fellows are offered a broad experience in all facets of pediatric emergency medicine¸ including clinical care, teaching, research and administration.

Resident Education

  • The emergency medicine rotation has an 18-month curriculum that is in alignment with American Board of Pediatrics recommendations for coverage of lectures.
  • We receive rotators from Nationwide Children’s, four emergency medicine programs and multiple family practice residency programs.
  • Residents get experience in both the critical care and acute care areas of the emergency department. OSU residents have the opportunity to do shifts at our satellite Emergency Department at Lewis Center.
  • Residents have the opportunity to work with pediatric emergency medicine fellows. During certain months of the year, one PEM fellow is dedicated to spending extra time with residents to hone in on educational opportunities, including supervising/histories/physicals/procedures/sedations.

Medical Student Education

  • Third year med students get paired up with a senior pediatrics resident one to three half days during their ambulatory rotation and rotate in the pediatric emergency department.
  • Fourth year medical students can participate in a pediatric emergency department rotation as a sub-intern and are expected to see patients on their own and staff with residents, fellows and attending physicians.
  • Several Pediatric Emergency Medicine faculty members are involved in teaching the fourth year elective (e.g. Advanced Topics in Pediatrics) for those students who anticipate doing a pediatrics residency.
  • If you are interested in completing a rotation in the pediatric emergency department or an away rotation, please contact Sheila Winland at (614) 722-4151.
