Educational activities continue to be a prime focus for the division.  The Division is the primary educational venue for the instruction of pediatric emergency medicine of the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.  In this pursuit, second, third, and fourth year medical students; pediatric residents of the first, second and third year, along with family practice residents of the second and third year, receive their pediatric emergency medicine education in the Emergency Department of the Bristol Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital.  The Department also instructs residents from the Family Practice program of the Somerset Medical Center and hosts various electives of medical students, emergency medical service students, and residents from other programs throughout the north east.


Resident educational activities include supervision of PGY1, PGY2, and PGY3 residents during all facets of their rotations in the Pediatric Emergency Department.  Furthermore, third year pediatric residents undertake elective rotations in the Pediatric Emergency Department and are afforded the opportunity to expand their emergency medicine education. 


For Prospective Students:

The division acts as the primary educational site for pediatric emergency medicine to a number of young learners. Young learners from the Department of Pediatrics, the Department of General Emergency Medicine, the Department of Family Medicine, and Physician Assistant Students from Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School are hosted to educational activities in our Pediatric Emergency Department.  Along with young learners from Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, family practice residents from the Somerset Medical Center as well as medical students and residents from other institutions elect to be educated by our division.


The division holds three meetings each month:


First Thursday of each month – Attendings Conference

Third Thursday of each month – General Business Conference

Fourth Thursday of each month – Literature Review
