Pediatric Emergency Medicine Track

Gain extra instruction and experience in the subspecialty of pediatric emergency medicine.


The goal for this track within the UB EM Residency is to provide trainees with extra instruction and experience in the subspecialty of Pediatric Emergency Medicine. This deeper exposure will allow EM graduates the ability to have a pediatric niche within their future practice groups and/or provide an excellent background for doing a Fellowship in PEM.
