The Pulmonary Diseases fellowship is an ACGME accredited two-year training program leading to eligibility for the American Board of Medical Specialties certification in Pulmonary Diseases.

Fellows spend a total of 12 months on inpatient Pulmonary Medicine consultative services and 6 months in the medical intensive care unit spread throughout their 24 month fellowship. The majority of the intensive care unit time is done during the first year of fellowship, with the focus of the second year on Pulmonary Medicine. The remaining 6 months is devoted to clinical research activity with some time spent in the Pulmonary Function lab. Fellows are permitted 4 weeks of vacation each year and are also given time to attend national conferences if they are presenting their original research.

There are weekly continuity clinics for general Pulmonary Medicine and for the Center for Sleep Medicine. Other outpatient experience can be had through the office of the community-based faculty.

Essentially all of our fellows have gone on to receive further training in Critical Care Medicine. A number of them have also done further training in Sleep Medicine and Interventional Pulmonology. Our prior fellows have ultimately practiced in community or hospital based settings and a number of them have gone on to practice in an academic enviroment.
