KOHN LONCARICA, Guillermo et al. Pediatric emergency medicine specialty: Welcome!. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2018, vol.116, n.4, pp.298-300. ISSN 0325-0075.

Pediatric Emergency Medicine has developed around the world as a subspecialty of pediatrics. There is plenty of data reflecting a growing need for its services. The subspecialty was initiated in the United States and Argentina, together with other Latin American countries, followed the same path. Nevertheless, there is yet much to be done. It is necessary to strengthen its promotion and to stimulate research and teaching activities in order to continue improving the quality of care delivered to the pediatric population, their families and society as a whole.
