Education / Graduate Medical Education / Prospective Fellows / Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship

Welcome to the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship Program!

Fellows Tali and Kara

We have a well-established fellowship with tracks for both EM and pediatric residency trained physicians. We care for our fellows deeply and are committed to maintaining an inclusive, supportive and open environment to promote learning and confidence.

We serve a 17-county geographically and socioeconomically diverse area of the state which includes children with the entire spectrum of illnesses and injuries.

You have the opportunity to get an advanced (masters) degree in public health, clinical investigation, medical education or medical management during your fellowship.

What Sets Us Apart

Flexible Curriculum

There is flexibility in the program, and it is not uncommon for residents to change tracks during training as their learning objectives and career goals evolve.

Mentor Relationships

Our fellows most commonly reference the personal relationships and valuable mentoring they receive as one of the top reasons why they would recommend URMC.

Life of a Fellow

Our emphasis on work/life balance is an important reason fellows choose URMC. A focus on trainees well-being enables you to learn and thrive in Rochester.

What Our Fellows Say...

Sabina Khan

"We have an incredibly big catchment area and see a significant variety of pathology. Not only do we see pediatric trauma from rural Western New York and Downtown Rochester, we see children who follow with sub-specialists at Golisano Children's Hospital for their complex medical conditions. This variety lends to an excellent training experience. Additionally, the fellowship program supports a Master's degree track."

Yulia Vabishchevi

"I initially did my Pediatric Residency at GCH and when I rotated in the Peds ED, I realized that despite being tired and exhausted from being in residency, I still looked forward to every ED shift because the people and staff are AWESOME. The staff in the Peds ED is cohesive, kind and supportive, everyone seems eager to help, and this easily lent itself to learning and growing as a critically-thinking, evidenced-based autonomous physician."
