Course Description

The topic of emergency medical services (EMS) is one that may receive little attention during fellowship in Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) and residency in Emergency Medicine or Pediatrics (or others). Early EMS Fellows may also benefit from this dedicated comprehensive course on EMS basic education. Since prehospital care is an essential component of the continuum of emergency care and children receive disparate care in the prehospital setting relative to adults it is vital that all physicians understand the EMS system. The online learning tool, Pediatric EMS Education, has been created by pediatric EMS physicians to address this need. It can be used by all healthcare professionals but is designed to target all residents and fellows in training, and PEM physicians who want to understand their potential role in clinical care, education, research, and advocacy in EMS.
