Located on the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (NUFSM) campus in the heart of downtown Chicago, this state-of-the-art, freestanding children’s hospital includes a 35-bed Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center emergency department (ED).

The Division currently has 38 pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) faculty, 7 emergency pediatrician faculty, and 17 pediatric advanced practice providers. Lurie Children’s is home to one of the longest-standing PEM fellowship programs in the nation with 3 fellows per year. In addition to providing direct emergency care, faculty participate in the supervision and training of medical students, paramedic and physician assistant students, advanced practice nurses, residents (pediatrics, emergency medicine, and family medicine), and PEM fellows. The Division has established cutting edge telemedicine, robust quality improvement, and innovative medical education simulation programs. Our Division is committed to a culture of inclusion and diversity. Academically, our division engages in rigorous research, quality improvement and patient safety initiatives, local and national advocacy, and cutting edge medical education programs. We are a well-established site within national research collaboratives. Our faculty lead both site-directed and multicenter research initiatives in a multitude of areas, including data science, medical simulation, translational research, prospective clinical trials, and health equity investigations. In addition to holding federal and other competitive grants, the Division supports faculty development and research initiatives with a substantial philanthropic gift from the Grainger Foundation.
