Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship


The Department of Emergency Medicine (DEM) works closely with the Department of Pediatrics, which sponsors the Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) fellowship program.  This program has welcomed graduates of both emergency medicine and pediatrics residency programs since its inception in 1995. The bulk of the fellows’ clinical time is spent at the emergency department at Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego (RCHSD), one of the busiest pediatric EDs in the country.  The pediatric emergency medicine faculty in the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine have joint appointments at UCSD and at RCHSD. 

Additional clinical experiences for PEM fellows take place in the Hillcrest ED and at the UCSD Burn Center and on rotations with the DEM’s Divisions of Toxicology and EMS and Disaster Medicine.
