Lurie Children's at Northwest Community Hospital
Dr. Meta Carroll completed an emergency medicine residency at Allegheny General Hospital and a pediatric emergency medicine fellowship at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. Embarking on a clinician/educator career path in pediatric emergency medicine, Dr. Carroll’s first educational commitment was to the medical students, residents, and fellows rotating through pediatric emergency departments, teaching at the bedside and in the classroom the care of acutely ill and injured children. After fifteen years in tertiary children’s hospitals, she moved to a clinical outreach site of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Her education efforts expanded to peer teaching (emergency physicians and community-based pediatricians) with a focus on case-based learning, clinical care guideline development, and quality improvement, striving for optimizing pediatric care in the community Peds ED and general ED settings, with “outreach” defined by the geographic expansion of pediatric subspecialty access, expertise, and resources. She completed a six-year term as an ABEM representative to the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Subboard of the American Board of Pediatrics and American Board of Emergency Medicine, then served on the Practice Analysis Panel of the PEM Subboard. She is currently a PREP E-Med Self-Assessment writer for the American Academy of Pediatrics, tasked with creating content for high-stakes exam preparation and continuous professional development. She has written and presented in the areas of caring for the adolescent in the ED, sexual and gender minority youth, child abuse, sexual assault, cognitive error in medical decision making, and prehospital anaphylaxis management. In 2018, she became an outreach Site Leader for the pediatric emergency department, Lurie Children’s at Northwest Community Hospital, providing medical direction, quality oversight, peer education and mentorship for her PEM and EM colleagues. Dr. Carroll has embarked on a new area of study in the Northwestern Bioethics Clinical Scholars Program at the Institute for Public Health and Medicine, Feinberg School of Medicine. She is honored to be presenting at SAEM20 Ignite! and wishes to extend much gratitude to her fellowship mentors, including John Loiselle, MD, Brent King, MD, Mark Joffe, MD, Zach Kassutto, MD, Chris King, MD, Fred Henretig, MD, and Joanne Decker, MD, all of whom set the standard for professionalism, caring, and dedication to pediatric patients and their families. She extends a special thank you for the support and mentorship provided by Dr. Elizabeth Alpern, Head of Emergency Medicine at Lurie Children’s.
