Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship

Fellowship Overview

The Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) fellowship program at Stanford University will offer fellows from both Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine backgrounds a rigourous and diverse training experience. The primary goal of the fellowship program is to develop physicians who are clinically excellent in the practice of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, especially in the management of the acutely ill and injured child. In addition, fellows are given the opportunity to become accomplished teachers, knowledgeable investigators and skilled administrators. With the unique resources of the Stanford University network, we are able to offer a fellowship of the highest caliber and train outstanding academic leaders in the field Pediatric Emergency Medicine.

Our fellowship in Pediatric Emergency Medicine was established in 2016 and is an ACGME accredited, three year program focusing on education and experience in patient care, research, teaching, and administrative responsibilities. In addition, there is the option to extend the fellowship by one year to pursue more in-depth research and training in ultrasound, pre-hospital medicine, simulation, wilderness medicine, social emergency medicine and global health.
