The Pediatric EM Curriculum was an addition to the original CDEM curriculum for students rotating primarily through pediatric emergency departments.
The curriculum is divided into two parts. There is a core set of topics (listed first in the table below). There is also a set of additional topics which should be covered if time permits. The topics will be selected by each individual clerkship director.
