Pulmonary Fellows

Program Mission: We exist to train outstanding physician leaders who improve the health of people with respiratory disease and critical illness.

Our fellowship program is of core importance to the activities of our section. Each year we welcome four new fellows, for a total of twelve fellows in the program. The primary goals of our curriculum are to assure each trainee's acquisition of the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors essential to the outstanding practice of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and to the continued development of our specialty. Our graduates are community PCCM physicians, academic clinicians, and physician-scientists who are thought leaders at the local, national, and international levels. Here you can find a list of our former fellows and their positions upon fellowship graduation.

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 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 schedule 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 external recognition of our institution as one of the best Respiratory programs in the country by the US News and World Report reflects very positively upon our fellowship program because of the integral relationship between fellow curriculum and our clinical and scholarly 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 leads to consistently successful recruitment of amazing fellows from a nationwide pool.
