Overview

New Pulmonary Fellows 2015

The Section on Pulmonary, Critical Care, Allergy and Immunologic Diseases at Wake Forest School of Medicine provides an exciting educational experience for our trainees.  The primary goals of our Pulmonary/Critical Care fellowship training program are to assure each trainee's acquisition of the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors essential to the independent practice of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. The development of skills essential to the consistent practice of state of the art, evidence-based medicine, with exemplary professionalism and awareness of the humanistic aspects of care allows our fellow graduates to become leaders in their field, whether in academic positions or community practice.

Three faculty committees support the fellowship program and ensure robust methods of career mentoring, formative evaluation, and continual program improvement.

Three year cirriculum

Our three-year curriculum is designed to provide each fellow with the clinical and investigational skills to excel in a career in academic medicine. The rigorous protection of fellows' time for academic pursuit and consistent oversight of the research experience is provided by our divisional research committee. Through this mechanism the plan for each fellow's scholarly experience is addressed in detail. Working with a faculty mentor who has particular expertise in the area of investigation, each fellow's time is designed to facilitate their specific career goals and result in scholarly productivity.

The quality of our Pulmonary/Critical Care Division has been recognized through a variety of external measures. The extension of our fellowship program's approval to five years in the most recent review by the Residency Review Committee represents the maximum cycle length afforded by the ACGME. We believe that the external recognition of our institution as one of the best Respiratory programs in the country by the US News and World Report also reflects very positively upon our fellowship program because of the integral relationship between fellow curriculum and our expanded clinical activities. Additionally, our Academic Pathways structure was featured in the 2015 ATS Innovations in Fellowship Education highlights at the International Conference. This level of externally recognized quality accounts for consistently successful recruitment of Fellows from a nationwide pool.
