Welcome to the Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics' (CMH) Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) Fellowship Program. The goal of our fellowship program is to develop academic pediatric emergency medicine physicians who will become leaders in the field, educators of emergency care providers and researchers who will work to improve the care of acutely ill and injured children.
The PEM fellowship program began in 1981, making it one of the oldest programs in the country, and is fully accredited by the ACGME.
We have two pediatric emergency departments for our institution. Our main ED comprises of a core urban population with an annual patient volume of more than 63,000. Our CMH South ED comprises of mostly suburban population, with an annual patient volume of almost 50,000.
Both sites provide an excellent mix of emergent, urgent and routine pediatric diagnoses. We provide 24-hour attending/fellow coverage and are the only Level 1 pediatric trauma center in the region. Our faculty and fellows are active in teaching, research, community advocacy and outreach as well as leadership at both local and national levels.
We support the pursuit of advanced degrees, such as masters degrees in public health, bioinformatics, health professions education and business administration during fellowship training. Please take a moment to explore our website and learn more about the program.
