At Geisinger, our innovative ideas are inspired by the communities, patients, & families we serve. We do things differently to reach our unique patient population in central, south-central & northeast PA with high quality pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) services. Our revolutionary approaches to local community outreach include tools like telemedicine, leveraging a robust EHR for pediatric-specific decision support to reach a previously PEM underserved population. Enjoy our many benefits, including educational opportunities using Geisinger's nationally recognized SIM program, our new ultrasound fellowship & state of the art ultrasound service.
Geisinger Medical Center's 45-bed Emergency Department cares for over 50,000 patients per year, including nearly 8,000 pediatric patients. Our brand new 9-bed pediatric zone was designed with babies, children, teens and their families in mind. Using nitrous sedation, we do our best to remain an “ouch-less” ED, and with over 50 certified PEM nurses throughout the system, quality, safety and comfort are our top priorities. Children admitted from our ED are cared for in Geisinger's Janet Weis Children's Hospital, a 90-bed, 5 floor on-site children's hospital which includes a 14 bed PICU and 41 bed NICU. Our children's hospital provides a comprehensive range of pediatric services including a full array of medical and surgical subspecialties.
Geisinger is seeking candidates with superior clinical and interpersonal skills and a strong desire to participate in program development, medical education and research. Candidates must be Pediatric Emergency Medicine fellowship trained.
