Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship

Emergency Medicine

The Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship was established in 2000. It has since grown tremendously in size and depth. The fellowship training program was granted continuing accreditation in January, 2015.

The overall objective of the training program is to provide trainees with excellent clinical training, resources to pursue independent research, and unique opportunities for educational pursuits. Our philosophy is that by providing a strong foundation during the early parts of the fellowship and a stimulating environment, the trainee will acquire the skills necessary for independence in clinical decision-making, research design, and educational and administrative endeavors.

Overall Goals and Objectives:

The overall objective of the training program is to provide the trainees with excellent clinical training, resources to pursue independent research, and unique opportunities for educational pursuits. Our philosophy is that by providing a strong foundation during the early parts of the fellowship and a stimulating environment, our PEM fellows will acquire the skills necessary for independence in clinical decision-making, research design, and educational and administrative endeavors.

At the end of training, our fellows will be equipped to manage all aspects of the acute care of medically ill and injured children, gain expertise with the methodologies of clinical patient-oriented research, possess the knowledge and experience to be a leader in the field of medical education, be familiar with administrative issues pertinent to the practice of pediatric emergency medicine, and understand the concepts and practice of quality improvement projects.
