Corewell Health is the new name for Beaumont.

The curriculum is a dual-track for emergency medicine and pediatric trained residents. Recruitment will target clinically based pediatricians and emergency medicine physicians with a strong desire in teaching and developing superior clinical skills.

Pediatric Trauma - As the only ACS verified pediatric trauma center in Oakland and Macomb country, Corewell Children’s get the most critically injured patients for trauma care.  Our PEM fellows are an integral part of the Trauma team, leading the resuscitations with our surgical services.  The emergency center at our Royal Oak campus serves as a regional referral center for pediatric trauma in our system and area.  It is verified as a Level II pediatric trauma center and Level I adult trauma center by the American College of Surgeons.  Surgeons are on call 24 hours a day, with air medical transportation readily available and on-site helipad.  

Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellows encounter multisystem trauma patients during their clinical PEM months at our home base of Royal Oak as well as their EM rotations here.  They also do a dedicated outside rotation at another local hospital trauma center to gain additional perspective and training.  We have regular in-situ simulations with the pediatric trauma surgeons to keep up to date on scenarios, procedure lab in our simulation center, as well as joint conferences with our trauma surgeons to review level I cases for education.

Our pediatric trauma team participates in community outreach education and events.  Bike safety, child seat safety, dangers of drinking and driving are some of the injury prevention topics.


Ultrasound - The fellows are taught by fellowship trained emergency medicine ultrasonographers. These highly motivated academic ultrasonographers are involved in didactic and hands-on teaching. Similarly, ultrasound faculty are strong in research, presenting at national and regional conferences.

High Fidelity Simulation - We offer a state-of-the-art Simulation and Surgical Learning Center that allows for hands-on training and simulation. The fellow will participate in high-fidelity simulation training on a monthly basis.

Hands-on Procedure Labs - Fellows have a monthly procedure lab as part of the weekly conference. This lab allows fellows to practice critical emergency procedures in the Surgical Learning Center.

Didactics: 18 month rotating didactic curriculum with weekly conferences to cover all board content specifications set by ABP Highlights, in addition to standard topic lectures, include:
