The faculty provides care at Kings County Hospital Center, an urban teaching and Level 1 trauma center, as well as at University Hospital of Brooklyn, the academic teaching hospital for the SUNY Downstate College of Medicine. The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine cares for over 35,000 pediatric patients at Kings County Hospital and 20,000 pediatric patients at University Hospital of Brooklyn annually. The PEM faculty provides 24/7 attending coverage with most shifts staffed with double coverage with PEM or EM faculty. Residents from the Departments of Emergency Medicine, Pediatrics, Family Practice and the combined EM/IM program along with physician assistant and medical school students rotate in our Division. We are also very proud to have started a pediatric emergency medicine fellowship in July 2009 and are excited with the opportunity to train future PEM physicians.
Candidates should be PEM board certified or eligible. A competitive compensation package, academic appointment and excellent benefits including coverage for health, vision, and dental; eligible to contribute to a 403b and 457 retirement vehicles; eligible for a pension retirement plan; and annual CME allowance.
Responsibilities of the faculty include direct patient care, supervision of the fellows, residents, and medical students, didactic teaching, research and participation in administrative activities.
