Pediatric Emergency Medicine

Joe RaveraWelcome to the section of Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) at the University of Vermont Medical Center.  Our mission is to provide high quality care to children throughout Vermont and northern New York.  Vermont is a tight knit community and PEM is no exception. We work closely with our community pediatricians as well as our pediatric hospitalists and specialists at the Vermont Children’s Hospital to provide excellent care.  Our patients range from ambulatory pediatrics, to children with chronic medical diseases, and critically ill or injured children.  We take pride in being able to provide care for the entire breadth of pediatric emergency medicine.

We also have a strong commitment to education with rotating residents from emergency medicine, pediatrics and family medicine. Additionally, we have an integrated role in the medical student emergency medicine rotation.  On the nonclinical side, we give lectures to both pediatric and emergency medicine residents as well as participate in administration relating to quality improvement and other care issues surrounding children presenting to the emergency department.

In the future, we look forward to hiring several more faculty as well as the construction of a separate pediatric emergency department.
