Zeb Timmons, MD
PEM Fellowship Program Director

Dr. Timmons became a faculty member at Phoenix Children’s Hospital beginning July 2013 (after completing PCH’s very own PEM fellowship program). He attended Creighton University in Omaha Nebraska for medical school and completed a pediatrics residency at Rush University in Chicago Illinois. After an extensive interview process, he chose Phoenix Children’s PEM fellowship as his number one choice. He has had no regrets about this selection, as it has been a terrific place to train (which is why he chose to stay on!) He is the Fellowship Director, director of quality for the Emergency Department, and is the hospital’s representative for several multi-institutional collaborative studies to improve sepsis care. His other interests include biomedical ethics, fellowship education and training, as well as developing evidence based treatment approaches to the pediatric ED. In his spare time he enjoys traveling, golfing, hiking, and all the other great outdoor activities Arizona has to offer.
