Teaching skills are developed through multiple avenues. Some of these include: precepting Pediatric Residents in the Pediatric Emergency Department, giving Pediatric Emergency Medicine lectures throughout the year and participation in simulation experiences. Lectures are presented to an array of individuals-from laypersons, paramedics, nurses, medical students, residents and to faculty. The Southeast Child Safety Institute provides an opportunity for our fellows to become involved in community education as well as education of health care workers. Special emphasis is placed in the area of injury prevention. One of North America's 52 certified regional poison control centers is located within our hospital, which also gives our fellows an excellent learning and teaching opportunity.
Our fellows are expected to successfully complete Basic Life Support, Advanced Trauma Life Support, and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. Our faculty and fellows are also responsible for teaching several Pediatric Advanced Life Support courses throughout the year.
