Eric R. Weinberg, M.D.
Pediatric Emergency Medicine
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.
