Aquila Lewis,         

    Peds-EM Fellowship      

Coordinator           

 

The duration of the fellowship is three years for graduates of pediatric residency programs. During the three years, fellows will rotate in the pediatric emergency department for 15 blocks (4 weeks per block) and have 10 blocks of dedicated research time. The first year fellowship curriculum consists of clinical rotations in the pediatric emergency department and areas related to pediatric emergency medicine, including anesthesia, critical care, orthopedics and general emergency medicine.  In the second year, the curriculum focuses on the continued development of clinical skills in the pediatric emergency department. The second year includes rotations in trauma, simulation, ultrasound, radiology, child abuse and EMS.  In the third year, the emphasis is on the completion of a research project and developing clinical independence in the pediatric emergency department.  In the third year there is also time for electives and administrative duties to encourage the fellow to explore and develop their professional focus of interest.

 

 

Graduates of emergency medicine (EM) residencies are required to complete two years of fellowship training. To provide more in depth exposure to pediatric medicine, the curriculum includes first-year clinical rotations of neonatology, pediatric subspecialties, general pediatrics service, and pediatric critical care. In the second year, emphasis is on developing clinical independence and continued development of their clinical and administrative skills.  Graduates of EM residencies will also be provided with research time and are required to produce a scholarly project.

 

 

Throughout the fellowship there is a didactic curriculum, which includes lectures, clinical management conferences, mock codes, quality improvement/risk management review and journal club.
