Pulmonary medicine fellowship program

CHoR is dedicated to improving the lives of children with respiratory disorders and their families

The mission of the fellowship program 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. The fellows are assigned as the primary physician of 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 schedule continue throughout the fellowship.

Program opportunities


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).
