Peds EM Curriculum

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.
