Pediatric emergency medicine fellows have the opportunity to broaden their clinical knowledge and acquire skills necessary for effective teaching in a variety of settings. In addition to weekly fellows’ conferences that cover a broad curriculum of clinical knowledge, educational strategies and clinical research techniques, fellows also participate in the following educational experiences:

  • Cincinnati Children’s Faculty Development for Fellows (formal training in learning theory as well as simulated teaching experiences)
  • McMaster University’s “How to Teach Evidence Based Clinical Practice” workshop
  • National Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship conference
  • Grant writing course
  • Completion of the certificate program in clinical and translational research, or enrollment and satisfactory progress in the equivalent (i.e., master’s in medical education, master’s in public health, master’s in epidemiology). The program must be approved by the fellowship director.
