More about our Division:

Children’s Hospital of Michigan has one of the busiest Pediatric Emergency Rooms in the country. We are a Level I Trauma Center as well as an ACS Certified Burn Center. Our Emergency Room has 52 ED treatment rooms, 4 Trauma Bays, and 6 Behavioral Health rooms. All processes and protocols were developed using lean methodology to improve quality and efficiency.

The ED is structured into pods, where care teams work together to provide seamless care. The new 4-bed resuscitation bay is fully equipped to manage multiple critically injured/ill patients. A provider at triage allows the department to efficiently care for lower acuity patients.

The ED is staffed by fellowship trained Pediatric Emergency Physicians, Pediatricians, and Nurse Practitioners. The Pediatric Emergency Medicine fellowship program, one of the largest in the country, attracts exceptional candidates from all over the United States.

We offer a good work-life balance as shift distribution is extremely democratic. Working with approximately 45 like-minded colleagues allows us to maintain significant flexibility to staff the ER. There is dual coverage for 7 hours at night while the rest of the day has 5 staff attendings working in 5 ER pods.

Candidate Requirements:

  • MD or DO
