One of the major goals of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine is to prepare physicians for careers in academic medicine. The overall goal of our fellowship is to provide fellows with a complete well-rounded training program designed to enhance their clinical skills, scientific knowledge, and provide the tools necessary to develop their research skills.
A strength of our fellowship training program is the balance we provide in terms of clinical training, research opportunities and our educational curriculum.
The pulmonary/critical care fellowship training program consists of 18 months of clinical training and 18 months of research activity. The majority of clinical inpatient training is done in the first year, with the second and third years protected for research training. These months are typically scheduled as follows:
In addition to the inpatient experience, fellows maintain an outpatient continuity clinic throughout their fellowship training, with additional outpatient clinic experience in sub-subspecialty programs such as pulmonary hypertension, lung cancer, interstitial disease, etc.
