Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship

Welcome to the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship at UConn Health and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.

The mission of the fellowship since 2000 has been to train leaders in pediatric emergency medicine. By providing our fellows with experience, education, and support we aim to develop:

  • Clinicians able to provide the highest quality care to sick and injured children.
  • Educators prepared to share their expertise with trainees, colleagues, and the community at large.
  • Researchers capable of identifying gaps in our current knowledge and pushing that knowledge forward.

We take two fellows per year, and have a total of six Pediatric Emergency Medicine fellows at a time. We see over 60,000 patients per year in our emergency department at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, which creates a rich learning environment in which to train. We are a Level I trauma center and our hospital provides the full range of pediatric subspecialty care. Our faculty have come to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center from all over the country and offers mentors across all subspecialties within Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Particular strengths of our curriculum include robust training in point-of-care ultrasound and simulation. We think that Connecticut Children’s Medical Center is a great place to train and are very proud our program, but at the same time are always looking for ways to improve it.

Thank you for your interest in our program. I invite you to learn more about our program, our faculty, and our fellows. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
