Pediatric EM

"Become clinically proficient in the care of the acutely ill and injured child, and develop necessary teaching and administrative skills to be a leader and expert in care of children in the practice of general emergency medicine." 

- Accommodated Residents: 2

- Combination track? Yes 

- Institutions: JHH and JHHCH

Major Objectives

1. Build medical knowledge, patient care skills, and procedural skills through a variety of clinical rotations and didactic teaching sessions.

2. Build communication, leadership and prioritization skills necessary to manage shifts in a pediatric emergency department.

3. Practice bedside teaching on clinical shifts. 

4. Participate in administrative meetings and QI efforts of the division.


5. Residents will work an average of 2 shifts per week in Pediatric EDs affiliated with JHH.  They will work in “fellow” role as a preceptor and teacher for other learners in the JHH ED.  The role at Howard County may be more as a primary provider. 

6. Residents will have priority for all procedures in the department (LPs, intubations, sedation, splinting, access procedures).
