Welcome To Our Program
Dr Anne F. Brayer, MD
Welcome to the University of Rochester Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship. We are a cohesive group of faculty and fellows with a goal to provide exemplary care to Rochester’s children. Our faculty members are board certified in Pediatric Emergency Medicine or in Emergency Medicine with a special interest in caring for children. We have been training fellows since 1992, and graduates of our program are working all around the country, in many different settings. Several are here in Rochester, as well.
We have the experience and technology available to respond to any type of emergency, from burns to broken bones, from an asthma attack to poisoning. Likewise, we have an incredible support staff made up of nurses, nurse practitioners, medical subspecialists, child life specialists and social workers, all of whom help provide complete and personal emergency care for each child that comes through our door.
I invite you to explore the links of this web page for more detailed information regarding our fellowship and application information.

The Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) Fellowship Program is fully ACGME accredited fellowship at the University of Rochester, with tracks for graduates of either Pediatrics (3-year program) or Emergency Medicine (2-year program) residencies. The program is primarily administered by the University’s Department of Emergency Medicine, with close ties to the Department of Pediatrics.
The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine consists of six boarded Pediatric Emergency Medicine physicians and five fellows. Division research centers on the health services issues, including the interface between primary care and emergency medicine, care of children in poverty, injury prevention, prehospital care, improving the quality of emergency care, decision analysis, head injuries, asthma and toxicology.
The pediatric emergency medicine fellowship has been in existence at the University of Rochester since 1992. In addition to providing excellent clinical training, and superb research trailing, the PEM Fellowship offers the opportunity to pursue a Master’s in Public Health, a Master’s in Science: Clinical Investigation, a Master’s of Medical Education, or a Master’s of Medical Management. PEM Fellows are an integral part of our faculty, and they are provided with the tools and support necessary to be successful pediatric emergency medicine physicians.
