Cindy Chang, MD, a clinical fellow in the Division of Emergency Medicine, has been appointed to the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Scholars Program.

The EMSC aims to optimize outcomes for children across the emergency care continuum by leveraging quality improvement science and multidisciplinary, multisystem collaboration. Their new Scholars Program is designed to support early career clinicians and health systems professionals in becoming leaders in the pediatric emergency space.

Chang is one of six scholars chosen nationwide to join the one- to two-year program, working alongside experts in the field to develop and implement a project in an area of interest. Her project will focus on identifying the preferred pediatric educational resources and modality needs of stakeholders in general community emergency departments.

Chang worked as a clinical research coordinator for EMSC’s Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) prior to earning her medical degree from the Ohio State University College of Medicine. She completed her emergency medicine residency at the Los Angeles County Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

Previously, she served as the chair of the Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association (EMRA) Pediatric Emergency Medicine Committee and was selected as the recipient of the EMRA Resident of the Year Award in 2020. She is the current editor-in-chief of the first edition of EMRA’s PEM Fundamentals handbook and a clinical instructor for the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Cincinnati.
