Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship

Information for the Pediatric Fellowship


The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill Department of Emergency Medicine received ACGME approval for a pediatric emergency medicine fellowship in October 2006. The program hosts a total of four fellows at any given time and accepts those trained in Emergency Medicine for a 2-year track as well as those trained in Pediatrics for a 3-year track. Due to its robust volume, the fellowship’s primary clinical site is the Children’s Emergency Department at WakeMed Health and Hospitals in Raleigh, North Carolina. Raleigh is approximately 30 minutes from the primary UNC campus. The Children’s Emergency Department at WakeMed sees over 40,000 pediatric patients/year with largely undifferentiated pathology. Faculty trained in both emergency medicine and pediatric emergency medicine staff the WakeMed Health & Hospitals Pediatric Emergency Department and serve as dedicated teaching faculty. The WakeMed Children’s Hospital enjoys an excellent relationship with UNC and Duke subspecialists in addition to having multiple subspecialists in pediatrics of their own on their primary campus. In addition to their time at WakeMed, fellows also rotate in specialty pediatric services (i.e. PICU) at UNC Hospital and have the opportunity to do a toxicology rotation at Carolinas Poison Control Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. In addition to the rotations below, the fellowship enjoys an enriching didactic program including a monthly disciplinary simulation exercise in a state-of-the-art high fidelity simulation center. The fellowship participates in ERAS.
