Emergency Medicine Residency 2022 Annual Report | 19 Pediatric Emergency Medicine (Peds-EM)
The Pediatric Emergency Medicine fellowship program at Children’s Minnesota has been training PEM physicians since 1988. The program is unique in that it offers two facilities,
one in Minneapolis and one in St Paul, with comprehensive emergency care offered at both sites. The Minneapolis campus is additionally certified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level 1 pediatric trauma center. The program has nine PEM fellows supported by 41 Pediatric Emergency Medicine trained physicians and 13 ED-based pediatric nurse practitioners. This comprises the largest pediatric emergency trained staff in the region. The hospitals see a combined volume of approximately 90,000 emergency department visits per year. The fellowship
Medical Education
The HealthPartners Institute/Regions Hospital Medical Education Fellowship is a one year fellowship with focus
on preparing leaders in medical education. Our fellows are completing a certificate program through ALiEM (Academic Life in Emergency Medicine), and bring these elements to focus in our program through journal clubs and projects
with various faculty. A focused fellowship curriculum is created based on the fellow’s future interests, with options
International Fellowship
The fellowship focuses on preparing fellows to develop emergency medical systems and provide medical education in international settings. Monthly education sessions are helping us build relationships with other colleagues in the Twin Cities and addressing topics that are critical to the practice of global health. We are taking advantage of Regions’ other fellowships to gain perspectives on Global EMS and Global Toxicology. We have an existing relationship with the
enjoys immense support from core faculty who provide
weekly lectures, a formalized ultrasound training program, monthly simulations, board review, and other core educational activities. Additional lectures and educational activities are provided by subspecialists from across the hospital system. PEM faculty also serve as mentors for fellow research projects, with additional research support provided by the department of Research and Sponsored Programs. Recently, the program introduced fellowship tracks for those fellows wishing for additional specialization of training. We currently have two fellows enrolled in our Ultrasound track. Plans are in place to introduce other tracks within the next few years.
including simulation, program administration, curriculum development, bedside teaching or program evaluation. Our fellows also work clinically at Regions Hospital as well as in
our Valley locations. In 2022 we welcomed Dr. Jacy O’Keefe and Dr. Graci Gorman, both 2022 graduates of the HealthPartners Institute/Regions Hospital Emergency Medicine Residency Program. For more information or for consideration, please contact Dr. Jessie Nelson and Dr. Kristi Grall.
Global Emergency Care Collaborative, an organization that has a training program for local providers in Uganda. We partner with the University of Minnesota’s Global Health Pathway to enhance educational opportunities for our fellows, as well as HealthPartners International clinic to allow for more international and social medicine research opportunities. In addition to working clinical shifts, we actively participate in multiple annual education events with Mano a Mano in Bolivia.
   Medical Student Program
The Regions Hospital Emergency Medicine Department has a long tradition of educating medical students. This year we were fortunate to return back to more standard pre-pandemic scheduling and rotations. We had a total of 71, 3rd and 4th year students rotate through the Regions ED during the 2021-22 academic year.
Medical student rotations hosted at Regions include: essentials of clinical medicine (ECM) for 1st and 2nd year students, core required EM clerkship for University of Minnesota Medical Students, and an advanced EM clerkship for EM bound students. We also offer bedside ultrasound and toxicology clerkships. Students rotating through Regions ED participate in workshops in orthopedics, eye, simulation and toxicology and attend the Thursday didactic sessions alongside the EM residents and faculty. During their clinical shifts they evaluate the undifferentiated patient, formulate
differential diagnoses and plans and perform basic EM procedures. They have the opportunity to participate in trauma team activations, code blue resuscitations and are able to evaluate patients across the entire spectrum of acuity.
Every year there are also 6 REACH students who complete all of their 3rd year clerkships at Regions (except pediatrics). The REACH LIC – Regions Equitable Affordable Community Health Program was started in 2018. These students also rotate through the Regions ED.
Every year at Residency Graduation the Kevin P. Kilgore, MD Award is given to the top medical student educators amongst the faculty. This year’s recipients were Brad Hernandez, MD and Mike Zwank, MD. The Star Award (Outstanding
Resident Educator for Medical Students) is also awarded and Dr. Graci Gorman was the recipient this year.
