Fellowship Program

The goal of the fellowship program in Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine is to prepare pulmonary and critical care specialists for medicine in the 21st Century with a three-year training program focusing on clinical competence, formal teaching, research and community service. Fellows begin pulmonary function testing interpretation and learn bronchoscopy. The second year rotations in Critical Care include Anesthesia, Surgical Critical Care, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Radiology, Nutrition, Nephrology, and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. The progress is monitored with in-service examinations provided by the Society of Critical Care Medicine, and a self-assessment scale rating both a sense of competency and comfort in performing procedures.
