*The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Children’s National is
accepting applications for a fellow in Academic Urgent Care for the 2018-19
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. The goal of the
fellowship is to facilitate the integration of pediatricians into all
pediatric environments-emergency departments, fast track, urgent care,
private practice and develop future leaders in the field.
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. Regularly occurring
didactics and a course in quality improvement is provided and fellows are
encouraged to participate in departmental teaching activities,
administrative committees, research, and quality improvement projects
depending on interest.
Suitable candidates must have completed a residency 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 is the only free-standing Children’s
hospital and the only Level 1 Pediatric trauma center in Washington
National has two emergency departments, a 40 bed ED located at our main
campus and a 15 bed ED at United Medical Center in Southeast Washington DC.
Between the two campuses we see >130,000 pediatric ED visits a year. Our
large and diverse faculty consists of successful clinicians, educators,
scientists and advocates. Our physicians have full faculty appointments in
the George Washington University School of Medicine.
To apply or for additional information, please contact the
program directors by Feb 15th, 2018.
