Pulmonary/Critical Care Fellowship

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.  

Fellows rotate 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. They are expected to develop a research project and a quality improvement project. Additionally, 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.

Applications should come through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). We will be participating in the NRMP Match and will accept applications for the fellowship from July 15 to September 30. Applications will be reviewed and then selected applicants will be contacted to schedule interviews. Inquires concerning the Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship can be directed to the fellowship Program Coordinator.
