Pediatric Emergency Medicine
Eric Weinberg

I entered the field of academic pediatric emergency medicinefor several reasons: the setting allows me to help a large number of patients with a wide variety of clinical illness, andI have the opportunity to teach residents and medical students on an everyday basis -- at the bedside, in the lecture hall,and in simulated patient environments. 

Dr. Weinberg is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and Assistant Attending Pediatrician in Pediatric Emergency Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
 
Dr. Weinberg received his medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, and completed his pediatric residency training and pediatric emergency medicine fellowship at New York University School of Medicine.
 
Dr. Weinberg’s clinical interests include simulation training in medical education, evidence-based medical practice, pediatric emergency ultrasound, pediatric disaster preparation, and patient-centered-care initiatives. He has championed the formation of a pediatric simulation program at Weill-Cornell, with the goal of improving patient safety through simulation-based training of residents and medical students and recently published a review of simulation in pediatric resident education.
  
Additional contributions to resident education include teaching the principles of evidence-based practice via journal clubs, didactic sessions, and bedside approach to patients in the pediatric emergency department. He has successfully implemented a pediatric emergency ultrasound curriculum for Weill Cornell faculty, and has taught hands-on ultrasound workshops at national pediatric conferences.
 
Dr. Weinberg is the pediatric faculty representative on the Weill-Cornell Disaster Committee and is a member of the pediatric centered care committee, where he has helped to improve the approach to pain control in the pediatric emergency department.
