Emergency Medicine | Fellowship | Clinical Activities

Washington University is an ideal place to gain clinical experience. The Division of Emergency Medicine, as part of the Department of Pediatrics at the Washington University School of Medicine, is based at St. Louis Children's Hospital (SLCH).

St. Louis Children's Hospital's Emergency Department is a Pediatric Level 1 Trauma Center. We receive approximately 58,000 visits annually. As a leader in ouchless pain management and sedation, every effort is taken to make children as comfortable as possible while being treated.

The division is comprised of 17 board certified physicians in pediatric emergency, 8 fellows, 12 pediatric nurse practitioners, 70 nurses, and pediatric and emergency medicine residents of all levels.
