Welcome to the Children’s Mercy Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) Fellowship Program & thank you for taking the time to learn more about our program! Our fellowship was established in 1981 making it one of the oldest programs in the country. Our Division has an active clinical research program supported by funding from federal and industry sources. PEM faculty conduct research across a wide range of interests including health disparities, adolescent reproductive and sexual health, adolescent relationship abuse, reproductive coercion, disease surveillance, medical education, and simulation. PEM faculty participate in multi-institutional studies, as well as collaborate across disciplines at Children’s Mercy.
