SUNY Downstate Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship

 

Thank you for your interest in our vibrant Pediatric Emergency Medicine fellowship program! Established in 2009, the program is led by an energetic and dynamic group of dedicated faculty determined to provide excellent clinical and academic training to our fellows. The PEM program is part of SUNY Downstate Medical Center, a large tertiary medical center. Located in the heart of Brooklyn, the health system serves its roughly 2.5 million population (the most populous of NYC’s five boroughs).

 

The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine cares for over 50,000 visits per year, below the age of 19 years between Kings County Hospital Center (KCHC) and University Hospital of Brooklyn (UHB).  At KCHC, the pediatric ED has 14 beds (6 monitored, a large asthma room, and 2 trauma/resuscitation bays).  Kings County is a New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation facility and a level 1-trauma center.

Across the road at UHB, the pediatric area has a total of 5 beds, 4 of which are monitored and an asthma area.  UHB is the official teaching hospital of SUNY Downstate.
