Emergency Medicine

The Emergency Department at Oishei Children's Hospital (OCH) is the Level 1 ACS-accredited Pediatric Trauma Center servicing all 12 counties of Western New York. It 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.

Education and Training

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. We also collaborate with other pediatric subspecialties within the department, such as pediatric critical care, on several projects.

Our ongoing projects include:

  • fluid management of DKA
  • ultrasound
  • intubation/resuscitation
  • asthma care
  • pain management
  • EMR
  • trauma

Faculty and fellows regularly present their research at the annual meetings of the Eastern Society for Pediatric Research and the Pediatric Academic Societies.

Clinical Care

Our division operates the Kids Express Program (Fast Track Clinic) during the busiest shifts (11 am to 11 pm) to facilitate the care of less seriously ill and injured patients. 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.
