The Fellowship Experience

Our four-year training program is designed to provide a solid foundation in clinical medicine and develop an individualized research plan.

View our academic portfolio

Year 1 Clinical Fellow (F1)

The F1 year provides grounding in pulmonary and critical care medicine with rotations in consult services, lung transplantation, physiology, and medical/non-medical intensive care units. We introduce you to research opportunities, identify potential mentors, and hold two research retreats (Spring/Fall).

Year 2 Clinical Fellow (F2)

The F2 year builds on the foundation of the F1 year with additional rotations in consult services and intensive care units. Advanced training is provided with anesthesiology (airway management), procedures (interventional pulmonology), lung pathology, and clinical electives. Finally, a research plan is developed following selection of a mentor and a project.

Year 3–4 Research Fellow

Protected research time with career development seminars. Elective time is also available for those interested in further subspecialty training.

Year 5–6 Junior Faculty

Protected research time with attending clinical time as funding progresses.
