Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM)
David Brousseau, MD, MS, leads a pediatric emergency medicine team consisting of thirty-one board-certified faculty physicians, eight fellows, ten physician’s assistants and five nurse practitioners. Administrative support includes a division administrator, data analyst, clinical research manager, grants operations coordinator, clinical research coordinators, administrative assistants and an education program coordinator.
In addition to academic duties at the Medical College of Wisconsin, the faculty and fellows serve as attending physicians in the Children’s Wisconsin Emergency Department. The team provides Level 1 pediatric trauma care to approximately 70,000 patients annually visiting from Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
We are actively engaged in the education and development of the next generation of emergency medicine physicians and researchers. The thriving Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship is currently training eight fellows to become experts in providing pediatric emergency care.
Research is a priority for the section with interests in the areas of analgesia and sedation, asthma, sickle cell disease, violence and injuries, penicillin, adolescent issues and outcomes for management strategies of several patient populations. Our faculty and fellows are actively involved in numerous research projects with over $8.2 million in funding and averaging 20 research publications per year. We are a participating research site for the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN).
