Fellowships

Programs

Five EM Fellowships are available at the University of Rochester:

Pediatric Emergency Medicine, International Medicine, Prehospital Medicine, Emergency Medicine Research, and Emergency Ultrasound.

Pediatric Emergency Medicine

The Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) Fellowship Program at the University of Rochester is an accredited training program, 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 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 training, the PEM Fellowship offers the opportunity to pursue a Master’s in Public Health. 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.
