Director's Statement

Welcome! Our pulmonary and critical care medicine fellowship program is a 3 year ACGME accredited subspecialty program established in 1966 with a long tradition and dedication to clinical training.

Our program offers an impressive blend of very common and very complex pulmonary and critical care disorders. This, in combination with excellent teaching and supervision by dedicated board certified faculty and support staff, creates a phenomenal atmosphere of learning and achievement.

Our fellows are some of the brightest in the country, and I along with the other faculty members and program coordinator are dedicated and committed to their education and success upon graduation in any realm of practice they choose. Our fellows log 1,000+ procedures before graduation, are competent in all aspects of pulmonary and critical care medicine, and gain unique experience at our institution that will allow them to be leaders in our field.

I am also pleased to announce that we have 4 critical care track positions: 2 infectious disease; 1 nephrology, 1 cardiology critical care. Please see our critical care track for further details.

We are a unique health system with an integrated delivery and financing system. We strive to deliver the highest quality patient care. We strive for an inclusive culture and are committed to the highest standards continuously learning, exploring new, better, creative ways to achieve excellence and be leaders in the health care industry.

We welcome your visit!!
