The Emergency Department at Oishei Children's Hospital
(OCH) has an annual volume of more than 45,000 pediatric patients
under the age of 21 and is the tertiary referral center for
pediatric subspecialty care.
Our division is actively involved in the education of both residents and medical students. Our fellows play an integral role in educating these rotating trainees.
Our three-year pediatric emergency medicine fellowship program at OCH trains physicians to provide compassionate, evidence-based, up-to-date emergency care for children.
We aim to provide fellows with the tools to ensure they are prepared for, and will excel in, every career path available within the field of pediatric emergency medicine.
Residents are an integral part of this intense learning experience. Pediatric residents are assigned to the emergency department during all three years of their residency and are given steadily increasing responsibility for patient care. Emergency medicine residents and family practice residents are also routinely assigned to this fully supervised rotation.
Faculty in our division are active in a wide variety of clinical research projects that reflect the diversity of pediatric emergency medicine. Each researcher has full support from the department and includes a multidisciplinary team, from statisticians to research assistants that cross multiple subspecialties.
Our ongoing projects include:
We are the Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center servicing all 12 counties of Western New York. Our faculty supervises the child-friendly emergency department 24 hours a day in our freestanding children's hospital, providing pediatric-focused nursing, radiology services, child life and social work.
Our Division of Emergency Medicine provides medical input for the pediatric component of paramedics functioning in Western New York and operates a pediatric stabilization and transport program.
A qualified and diverse staff offers emergency services, including:
We work in collaboration with our 24/7 adult internal medicine specialists and OB/GYN specialists for OB/GYN emergencies. In addition, our division consults on inpatient child abuse cases.
