Welcome to the Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) Section
Our Section Chief is David Brousseau, MD, MS. There are twenty-five faculty physicians in the Section, nine PEM fellows, seven Physician's Assistants, nine Nurse Practitioners, two Research Coordinators, Clinical Research Assistants, and two Administrative Assistants. In addition to their academic duties at the Medical College of Wisconsin, the faculty and fellows also serve as attending physicians in the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Emergency Department. We hope that you will use this web page to find out more about our Section, its faculty and fellows, ongoing research studies, and the academic programs we offer.
Our Emergency Department has an annual census of 61,000. We provide Level I pediatric trauma care for Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
We have an active Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship and currently are training nine fellows.
Research is also active, with interests focused in the areas of analgesia and sedation, violence and injuries, fever, and outcomes for management strategies of several patient populations. We are a research site for the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN). Responsibilities of the academic physicians include research, teaching, and clinical care. Clinical physicians provide clinical coverage and teaching.
