Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship at Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York
Our fully accredited, three-year fellowship training program has been designed to take advantage of the vast resources of CCMC/LIJMC emphasizing clinical medicine, teaching, research, and administration. In addition to an intense learning experience preparing the fellows to supervise the ED facility, the fellowship consists of a variety of rotations including orthopedics, ENT, gynecology, ophthalmology, toxicology, anesthesia, critical care, trauma, and adult emergency medicine, as well as an ongoing course in research design.
The overall goal of the program in pediatric emergency medicine at Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center is to provide progressive clinical, teaching, research and administrative experiences that will enable our residents to acquire the expertise necessary to become an academic pediatric emergency medicine physician. It is expected that during the three-year program the subspecialty resident will (a) become clinically proficient in the practice of Pediatric Emergency Medicine with emphasis on the acutely ill and injured child, (b) become competent in teaching other professionals, health care providers and families about appropriate topics in their field of expertise, (c) demonstrate competence in research and (d) become familiar with the administrative issues relevant to an emergency department.
