About Dr. Baxter

Pediatric Emergency Medicine 2023-2025 Residency University of Nebraska Medicine Center, Omaha, NE

Tell us about the position you are starting.
The Children's Nebraska Pediatric Emergency Medicine fellowship is a wonderful addition to our ever-busy and ever-growing department. We have wonderful faculty who I've known for years and rotating on other services, they've all been excited for our new program as well. I think it adds a lot of academic fortitude to our department and will help push us to the next level of delivering quality care and training the next generation of PEM specialists.
Tell us about your background.
I am an Omaha native and grew up with both my parents as nurses. I played football in high school at Omaha North and college at Benedictine College where I majored in Biology and Spanish. I came back to UNMC for medical school and Emergency Medicine residency.  I got married to the most wonderful woman, my wife Jenne, in my last year of residency and we were so excited to be staying in Omaha for fellowship.
Why did you choose to come work at UNMC?

After living in Omaha for most of my life, I have established a lot of roots here. My family and my wife’s family are both primarily here as well, so we had a lot of reasons to stay. Being a part of a new fellowship has been exciting for me and I am excited to be able to help shape the program and hopefully better it by my involvement as a part of the inaugural class. I truly love the mix of academic and community medicine that is present here in Omaha between Childrens Nebraska and UNMC and would love to remain working here after fellowship. 

What makes you excited about working in PEM?

Through my medical school rotations, I realized it was great to combine my passion for caring for patients in the healthcare setting and with the *fun* that is only present in pediatric medicine! Another part of pediatric medicine that drew me towards choosing this career was the amount of education that is typically involved in pediatric medicine and knowing that we can often make changes in the child's life that could even impact their children, should they choose to have them later in life. Last, but not least, is that I just simply love the variety of visits in the emergency room and the chance to see more acute improvements in the disease processes with which my patients present. So, Pediatric Emergency Medicine is the best option for the combination of everything I love in medicine.   

Tell us something about yourself that is unrelated to medicine.

I love learning how to do DIY house projects. I’ve learned so much through YouTube and the internet that it has amazed me what I’ve accomplished in my 1918 home! I have research interests in medical education and personal interests in finance for physicians.

About Dr. Creglow

Pediatric Emergency Medicine 2023-2026 Residency: Children’s Mercy Hospital, Kansas City, KS

Tell us about the position you are starting.

Jared and I are fortunate enough to be the first ever Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellows at UNMC. PEM Fellowship involves specialized training in all aspects of medicine involved in the care of peds patients in the ED. We get plenty of time in the ED, but we also get to explore other rotations that can help us grow as ED doctors. Including radiology, simulation, critical care, transport, anesthesia, ultrasound, and several others. It involves 3 years of specialized training for those who come from pediatric residency and 2 years for those from EM residencies. 

Tell us about your background.

My first introduction to the world of medicine was in college as a volunteer firefighter and EMT for the small town my college was in. Being a firefighter was one of the most enriching experiences I had in college and shaped much of my career path. After my time in the department, I was always drawn to higher acuity medicine and had an intense passion for outreach to smaller rural communities. The emergency medicine field was perfect for this. My choice to work with the pediatric population stems more from my family. I have a brother who is about 10 years younger than me who has special needs. Ever since my family was blessed with my brother's arrival, I have been fortunate enough to get more involved in the special needs community. This led me to work with children diagnosed with autism at UNMC's Munroe Meyer institute (MMI) while in medical school. My time at MMI cemented my desire to spend the rest of my career serving the pediatric population to the best of my ability. 

Why did you choose to come work at UNMC?

I went to school at UNMC and already knew it well. I knew there would be many opportunities to pursue my research interests and many other resources, due to the robust pairing between UNMC and Children's Nebraska. Being able to be closer to family and friends was quite a benefit as well! 

What makes you excited about working in PEM?

It is a rapidly expanding field that is having job opportunities popping up all over the country. It is a rapidly growing specialty in terms of scope and resources as well. Between a recent push for more PEM research and knew technological advancement, like POCUS, we are constantly improving the way we practice medicine in the ED. It is also a field where I will have the opportunity to continue to pursue my passion of helping train rural volunteer EMS/firefighters. 

Tell us something about yourself that is unrelated to medicine.

I would happily spend most of my time outdoors and, thanks to the new puppy, my significant other and I rescued at the end of residency, I now have many opportunities to spend time outside. Now that I have some free time missing during much of my residency, I've been able to explore new hobbies like woodworking. I am still not great at it by any means, but it has been a lot a fun trying so far.
