I may be wrong, but as I understand it, people who pursue a Peds EM fellowship following an EM
residency only have to do two years of fellowship, as opposed to three years for those people
coming from a Pediatrics residency. The SAEM website (http://www.saem.org) has a list of
Pediatric Emergency Medicine fellowships. You can head over to individual websites and read about
what the programs have to offer and how they're structured. But I don't think you can cut it back
to less than five years overall (residency and fellowship). Good luck in your medical career!
