Paediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) links the specialties of Paediatrics and Emergency Medicine. In Europe, PEM is still regarded as a new medical profession. The EUSEM PEM Section was established in October 2006 with the goal of encouraging physicians who are practicing Emergency Pediatrics to join EUSEM and to be involved in its clinical, educational and research activities.
At the section meeting in Amsterdam in September 2014, Dr Ian Maconochie was elected as the new Chair of the PEM section. The section will; be jointly chaired by Dr Ian Maconochie and Dr Javier Benito for the next year.
