Pulmonary medicine fellowship program

We are actively recruiting for a pulmonary medicine fellow to start in July 203. The fellowship is a three-year, ACGME-accredited program designed to provide outstanding candidates with the clinical, research and teaching skills needed to become a leader in academic pediatric pulmonology. Fellows completing the program will be eligible for certification. We are accept applications through the ERAS system until October 1, 2022 for a July 7, 2023 start date. (All documents must be submitted through ERAS.) 


The mission of our pulmonary medicine fellowship is to prepare specialists with medical knowledge; clinical skills and judgment; self-assessment; proficiency in communication, professional attitudes and behavior; competence performing medical procedures; research skills; teaching proficiency; humanistic qualities; and a commitment to scholarship. 

During the first year, comprehensive patient care is established through intensive hands-on patient-focused training, In addition, fellows supervise and teach pediatric residents and medical students in the care of hospitalized pediatric pulmonary patients. Fellows are assigned as the primary physician for a number of newly diagnosed patients whom they continue to follow throughout the three years of fellowship. The second and third years of the fellowship are dedicated to providing the fellow with a meaningful research experience with the perspective of publication, independent grant support and recognition. Continuity clinics and on call schedules continue throughout the fellowship. 


Evaluations are performed for each rotation and on a semi-annual basis by the program director, with input from supervising faculty (Clinical Competency Committee) and various fellowship committees (Scholarship Oversight Committee).
