We are pleased to announce that we are currently accepting applications for the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Fellowship at Children’s National Medical Center commencing July 2017.
The PEM US fellowship is a one-year, joint fellowship with the Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Program at George Washington University Hospital. This unique program is designed for PEM physicians who are interested in developing expertise in pediatric emergency ultrasound applications. The pediatric emergency ultrasound fellow will participate in weekly scanning shifts as well as weekly US quality assurance review sessions at both campuses CNMC and GWU. The PEM US fellow will be trained in pediatric and adult emergency ultrasound applications.
CNMC and GWU both have robust emergency ultrasound sections with 3 dedicated ultrasound faculty members at both locations. During the PEM US fellowship, the PEM US fellow will work clinically as a pediatric EM attending at CNMC.
Children’s National Health System in Washington, DC is one of the nation’s leading pediatric hospitals. Children’s Emergency Medicine and Trauma Center is the only free standing children’s hospital in the area and serves as the only Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center in Washington, DC.

Children’s National Health System 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 have more then 130,000 pediatric ED visits a year.
