The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship at Boston Medical Center, an accredited program established in 1988, is devoted to training highly skilled physicians for leadership roles in this rapidly developing sub-specialty. In addition to the superlative clinical experience fellows receive, they also engage in a variety of teaching, administrative and research projects. Our fellows have been very successful producing academic publications and presentations. They have become leaders in the field of pediatric emergency medicine. The fellows play an active role in all aspects of the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine. We are extremely flexible in adjusting to the needs and interests of our fellows and see the education of the fellows as a joint effort between fellows and the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine.
The research program of the fellowship is aided by our association with the Boston University School of Public Health and by our close collaboration with the Division of General Academic Pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine/Boston Medical Center. Our fellows take part in regular research meetings with faculty from both pediatric emergency medicine and general academic pediatrics.
Our fellowship also works closely with the Department of Emergency Medicine at BUSM/BMC. This relationship offers our fellows excellent trauma experience in a familiar environment.
Additionally, we have augmented our fellows' experience with international health rotations. We believe this experience expands our fellows’ clinical skills while offering unusual opportunities to expand their knowledge of healthcare delivery systems.
The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine is part of the Department of Pediatrics at Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Medicine. Boston Medical Center plays a major role in the care of children in Boston, especially from communities traditionally underserved by the healthcare system. Our Pediatrics Department is a leading force in ambulatory pediatrics nationally and an incubator of innovative programs that address pediatric healthcare needs as a comprehensive, multi-faceted challenge. Programs addressing housing, literacy, violence and other issues that affect child health have all been developed in our department. The Pediatric Emergency Department has always been a major part of Boston Medical Center's commitment to children and an essential part of residency education.
The Pediatric Emergency Department has twelve rooms for non-acute care, four beds for acute care/observation and a trauma/resuscitation suite. BMC is a level one trauma center with level two pediatric designation. The Pediatric ED has approximately 29,000 visits per year. Our ED also provides on-line medical control for the city of Boston.
