Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) is a subspecialty training program accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. The goal of the program is to produce an individual who is:
- Clinically proficient in the practice of pediatric emergency medicine, particularly in the management of the acutely ill and injured child
- Competent in teaching pediatric emergency medicine
- Capable of conducting research
- Familiar with flow management and administrative issues
The core requirements for Royal College certification are completed in two years. Consideration for funding our trainees for a three-year program is also available. This qualifies them to write the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Subspecialty Certifying Examination offered by the American Board of Pediatrics, but must be identified upon entry into the program.
