Hi guys,
I'm a peds PGY1 and am interested in ER. I have two routes I can take: Do a peds ER fellowship (PGY 4-6) and limit myself to working in a peds ER with less pay than adult ER docs make. Or, I can do a general ER residency (PGY 4-6) and be able to cover adult ER's and feel very comfortable, with my peds background, covering peds ER's as well. Any benefits to either of these routes?

Also, should I do an ER fellowhip/residency is there any way to keep that long-term relationship you'd have in general peds, but doing ER? Any suggestions?

Thanks.

if you do a peds er fellowship after a peds residency, i beleive that limits you to working in those ERs that have a dedicated peds section.

(someone please correct me if i am incorrect)

if you are intersted in EM, then you might want to consider doing an ER residency, followed by a peds fellowship after EM. (not many programs, though). but this way, you are not limited in which ERs you can work in

hope this helps.
