Established in 1991, The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine provides state-of- the-art unscheduled and emergency care to children and adolescents from birth to 21 years of age in the Emergency Department of St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The Division also has a Section of Child Abuse Pediatrics, which provides comprehensive diagnostic, forensic and therapeutic services to children who have been victims of abuse. The Division has a robust fellowship program, which is one of only two fellowships in Pediatric Emergency Medicine to be supported by an NIH training grant. There is also a new Fellowship Program in Child Abuse Pediatrics. The Division provides education to medical students, residents in pediatrics and emergency medicine, fellows and to office and community physicians and allied health workers. The Division has 16 faculty members and 8 fellows.
In addition to Dr. Manary’s work combating childhood hunger worldwide, we have been active in supporting the Injury Free Coalition’s many community activities, including building of playgrounds, safety street, changing smoke alarm batteries, and other community education and demonstration projects in conjunction with the community outreach program of St. Louis Children’s Hospital. We support educational programs in local schools and at our world famous Science Museum.
