The curriculum for emergency medicine residency graduates includes a minimum of six months of pediatric rotations, which may include general pediatric outpatient and subspecialty rotations in place of the emergency medicine / trauma rotations.
Elective time may be spent in any subspecialty at St. Louis Children’s Hospital or Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Fellows may also participate in international or other “away” rotations with the program director’s approval. Moonlighting opportunities in the SLCH ED and off-site affiliated EDs are available. Fellows are allotted four weeks of vacation time per year.
Research time is spread longitudinally over the course of the fellowship. During pediatric emergency medicine/research months, fellows are scheduled for 12 shifts in the SLCH ED, allowing time to progress in their scholarly projects on an ongoing basis throughout fellowship.
