Pulmonary/Critical Care Fellowships
The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine focuses on education as a primary responsibility. The Division offers a three-year combined Pulmonary/Critical Care Program or a two-year Critical Care Program that devotes up to 24 months to clinical rotations and electives; the total clinical time may be adjusted to suit individual career goals.
Clinical training for the combined Pulmonary/Critical Care Program is composed of four services:
- University Pulmonary Consult
- University Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU)
- Veterans Hospital Medical Intensive Care Unit, and
- VA consults.
The clinical rotations are concentrated in the first two years of fellowship, leaving the third and optional fourth years devoted primarily to research.).
In addition, all fellows are required to participate in a series of conferences, teaching blocks, and lecture series which are designed to provide a comprehensive background in theory and practice.
At completion, the physician will be board eligible for both Pulmonary and Critical Care subspecialty certifications. Resources are available to extend training for those interested in basic science or clinical research careers.
Both programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Our carefully designed curriculum and dedicated faculty ensure that fellows are well prepared for the American Board of Medical Specialties Pulmonary and/or Critical Care certification examinations.
