FELLOWSHIP

 

Structure of Fellowship

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine fellowship is a three-year program with time equally divided between clinical and scholarly training. The fellowship offers two training pathways: 1) a traditional physician-scientist track, and 2) an innovative clinician-educator track.  Each fellow receives 18 months of clinical training followed by 18 months of scholarly training in biomedical research or medical education.  Since the goal of the fellowship is to prepare physicians for a career in academic Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, an additional year of research/scholarly training is available and is strongly encouraged. 

A typical schedule for each pathway might look like the following:
