THE SOUTHWEST RESPIRATORY AND CRITICAL CARE CHRONICLES

Fellowship Description

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship is a three-year training program and qualifies the trainee for certification in both pulmonary medicine and critical care medicine. Significant time is spent in the medical intensive care unit and on the pulmonary consultation service. In addition, the fellow rotates through the coronary intensive care unit, the surgical intensive care unit, other inpatient and outpatient services and the intensive care unit at Covenant Medical Center. The fellows are expected to develop a research project and a quality improvement project. Fellows work closely with faculty members in the Department of Internal Medicine, residents in the School of Medicine, and students in the School of Medicine.
