Why Choose Our Fellowship Program?

Dedicated Faculty, Personal Attention

Our core faculty members, who are certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, are clinically active physicians and researchers. Our low fellow-to-faculty ratio allows us to work closely with you, from direct observation and feedback at the bedside to advising you on your educational goals, patient care and scholarship. Many of us conduct clinical translational research and mentor fellows interested in doing the same.

Noteworthy Research Possibilities

Our faculty members have a broad range of research interests with extramural funding from the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs  to support our research projects. You will have opportunities to conduct translational, bench, clinical and epidemiological research.

Comprehensive Clinical Experience

Our diverse training sites in the four major area hospitals provide rich and broad exposure to the full spectrum of patients with pulmonary critical care diseases in a variety of health care settings. Each hospital serves a different patient population and has unique features

We offer unique clinical opportunities that are not found in every pulmonary and critical care fellowship, including experience in a designated pulmonary hypertension clinic run by our pulmonary hypertension expert, a trauma and burn center and a comprehensive cancer center. You'll perform endobronchial ultrasound and navigational bronchoscopies in our program.

We are careful to ensure you experience the same systems-based practice curriculum across our entire program. During your fellowship training, you will learn to work effectively in various health care delivery settings, acquire knowledge of practice and delivery systems, advocate for quality care and optimal systems, coordinate patient care across settings and become familiar with cost awareness as well as risk and benefit analysis.
