Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship
The Phoenix Children's Hospital's pediatric emergency service is the first emergency department exclusively for kids in Arizona. In 2008, the department provided care for over 60,174 patients. The 30-bed department includes an eight-bed private observation area, a separate six-bed fast track area, two trauma/resuscitation rooms, and a 14-bed acute treatment center. Every one of our full-time physicians is fellowship trained in the subspecialty of pediatric emergency medicine coming from children's hospitals all over North America.
The hospital received ACGME accreditation for a pediatric emergency medicine fellowship in December 2003. The first two pediatric emergency medicine fellows started their training in July 2004. The curriculum is outlined below and includes a full research year distributed evenly over the fellowship as required by the ACGME. The fellows will be primarily based at Phoenix Children's Hospital with rotations in adult emergency medicine at Maricopa Medical Center, trauma at St. Joseph's Hospital, toxicology at Good Samaritan Regional Poison Center, and EMS with the Phoenix Fire Department. Electives will be available in all the different subspecialties. The formal education program will consist of didactic lectures, literature reviews and structured reading arranged as weekly conferences.
