Our Emergency Department (ED) and American College of Surgeons-verified Pediatric Level I Trauma Center (the only one in the state) opened in September 2017. This amazing care facility is the only pediatric emergency service in a free-standing children’s hospital in Arizona. We provide care to 100,000 children annually from the Phoenix metroplex, rural Arizona and surrounding states, as well as travelers and immigrants from across the border.

Our ACGME-accredited Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship was established in 2004. We have 30+ board-certified PEM physicians in our faculty. Our fellows cover the Phoenix Children’s ED 24/7 with the exception of protected time during our weekly didactics. We currently have twelve fellows in our program and will offer four positions through the NRMP.
