The Baylor College of Medicine Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship is a progressive, broadly oriented, fully accredited fellowship that provides an opportunity to study the emergency care of children from infancy through adolescence, and in some instances, into adulthood.
PEM fellowship is administered through Baylor and is conducted at the affiliated medical facilities of the school. While the majority of PEM fellows' clinical rotations occur at Texas Children's Hospital, some of the clinical shifts and rotations are conducted at St. Luke's Woodlands Hospital and The University of Texas Memorial Hermann Hospital. With the exception of St. Luke's Woodlands Hospital located one hour north of the medical center, all of the above institutions are located within the Texas Medical Center, and are within walking distance of each other.
Weekly didactic conferences exist for the further education of the fellows and section members. Fellows' times are protected such that they are never scheduled to work clinical shifts during times preceding and coinciding with conferences.
Fellows may also pursue master's degrees in Business Administration, Education, Epidemiology, or Public Health during the course of their fellowship. For candidates interested in global health work, a global health pathway is available for fellows accepted into the PEM Fellowship.
The Baylor PEM section faculty includes pediatric emergency medicine subspecialists, pediatric forensics subspecialists, and general pediatricians. All pediatric subspecialty areas and clinical services are well represented at Texas Children's, with most services providing 24/7 coverage for the Emergency Center.
