Boston Children’s Hospital
PEM Fellowship program
Boston Children’s is proud to offer a new Pediatric Acute Care Fellowship at South Shore Hospital. Acute and urgent care are important components of pediatric medicine. A general pediatrician can hold an important role in pediatric emergency rooms, where acute or urgent care is often sought by families1. General pediatric residency training provides very little towards the nuanced skill set for a pediatrician to work independently in a pediatric emergency room2,3. This is a one-year program designed to train pediatricians to practice in the high-acuity, fast-paced environment of a community pediatric emergency room. Our goal is to create experts in the emerging field of Pediatric Acute Care Medicine who will become leaders in the field. This fellowship is designed to prepare pediatricians for a career in pediatric acute or urgent care medicine.

Children’s National Health System
This fellowship program will train general pediatric residency graduates/general pediatricians in aspects of clinical care, procedural skills, teaching strategies, quality improvement and research fundamentals related to the emerging field of pediatric urgent care. Fellows spend dedicated blocks of time learning from specialists in disciplines such as orthopedics, radiology and ENT and gaining experience in sedation, ultrasound, and procedural skills.
Suitable candidates must have completed an ACGME residency program in pediatrics. Interested practicing pediatricians are also encouraged to apply. This one-year fellowship is designed for pediatricians interested in practicing in either an academic or community setting who desire additional clinical and procedural pediatric training. Fellows will work alongside Pediatric Emergency Medicine faculty at both campuses of the Emergency Department at Children’s National.
Please contact Haroon Shaukat, MD at email@example.com for further information and/or to apply. Applications will require a CV and at least 2 letters of recommendation.

PM Pediatrics Fellowship Programs: Pediatric Urgent Care Medicine Fellowship
*MD and APP fellowships offered
In July 2012, PM Pediatrics launched the first-ever fellowship program in pediatric urgent care medicine. This is an exciting opportunity for graduating pediatric residents and pediatricians who wish to enter this emerging field of medicine. Our one-year program includes supervised clinical training at all PM Pediatrics sites, as well as rotations in Orthopedics, Radiology, ENT, Opthalmology, EMS, Allergy/Asthma, and Procedural Elective.
The fellowship in pediatric urgent care medicine at PM Pediatrics is the first of its kind and is designed to close the gaps from pediatric residency training, while enhancing the clinician’s ability to practice in a high-acuity, fast-paced environment. We supplement our clinical experience with sub-specialty rotations, monthly lectures, procedural training workshops, and medical simulation, to accomplish the goal of creating academic and clinical experts in the emerging field of pediatric urgent care medicine. The graduate will develop the skills necessary to deliver expert care, manage a practice and become a leader in the field.
PM Pediatrics Fellowship Programs: Pediatric Urgent Care Fellowship – Accelerated Track for Experienced Pediatricians
*MD and APP fellowships offered
We offer an accelerated 6-month fellowship track specifically tailored for experienced pediatricians. When making the transition to pediatric urgent care, pediatricians may have limited experience with bedside procedures, orthopedic injuries, and radiology interpretation. In addition, urgent care providers are called upon to render expert (and sometimes emergent) care in a setting where there is limited availability of on-site consultants.
With the understanding that a seasoned pediatrician has already acquired expertise in various areas, our accelerated track is targeted at filling in the gaps where needed, personalizing the program to the fellow’s individual needs. Our fellows work alongside our experienced pediatric emergency medicine-trained providers to gain proficiency in pediatric urgent care medicine. The graduate will develop the skills necessary to become an expert in the field of pediatric urgent care medicine.
