Education and Training

The PEM Fellowship at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh is a three-year ACGME-accredited program that serves patients from the greater western Pennsylvania region, including eastern Ohio, northern West Virginia, and western Maryland. As the region's only Level 1 Regional Resource Pediatric Trauma Center and primary pediatric referral facility, most children who have serious illness or injuries in the region are transported to Children's Emergency Department, where approximately 85,000 children are treated annually. 

The fellowship program itself holds 9 spots every year for new fellows to the Division. Additionally, there are two one-year fellow positions unique to Children's Hospital: the first is a position specifically oriented around a subspecialty in urgent care medicine, and is run by Natan Cramer, MD, FAAP; the other, run by Vipin Philip, MD, will focus on the use of ultrasounds in pediatric emergency medicine. Both one-year programs are designed around a growing demand for more subspecialty training in urgent care and the ultrasound imaging.
