Message from Program Directors


Thank you for your interest in our newly created pediatric emergency medicine fellowship program at the UMass Chan Medical School in Worcester, Massachusetts. For decades, the pediatric emergency department and the Children’s Medical Center at UMass Memorial Medical Center have been caring for ill and injured children from across central Massachusetts, as well as New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.  Our staff of board-certified pediatric emergency medicine providers are excited to have created a world-class fellowship program with the aim of training the next generation of clinicians, educators, and leaders within the field of pediatric emergency medicine.  We are excited to welcome our first fellow in July 2022 and anticipate that Inbar Plaut will have the unique experience of being intimately involved in shaping the foundations of our fellowship curriculum to the benefit of future fellows for years to come.  

The UMass pediatric emergency medicine fellowship program will conduct virtual interviews for the 2023-2024 recruitment season. This decision was made in accordance with the recommendations of multiple national residency and fellowship leadership groups, including AAMC and AAPD, and is in line with best practices as outlined by UMass Chan GME. By holding virtual interviews, our hope is that all interested applicants will feel empowered to apply to our program without worrying about the time and expense incurred with travelling long distances for an in-person interview. In addition, we will not be offering in-person “second look” visits, so that all applicants can be considered equally and without bias, regardless of their ability to travel for a visit in-person.

Interviews will be conducted in the mornings on select weekdays in September and October.

First Week of August: UMass pediatric emergency medicine fellowship application deadline
Mid August: Invitations for interviews begin and will be extended on a rolling basis. All applicants will be given 72 hours to respond and schedule an interview.
