Pulmonary Critical Care Fellowship

The University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship Training Program is accredited and offers 13 approved positions. The program is accredited by the Association of Clinical Graduate Medical Education. The overall objective of our program is to prepare trainees for a wide spectrum of career opportunities, including academic teaching and patient care in respiratory and critical care medicine, biomedical research, and community-based specialty practice. Typically, trainees spend three years in the Program consisting of rotations in clinical pulmonary medicine, critical care medicine, and basic and clinical research. Additional years of research training are available and supported by the faculty for selected trainees interested in careers as physician-scientists or basic researchers. The typical three-year program makes trainees eligible for certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care. The program is conducted at several facilities: Jackson Memorial Hospital (a county hospital), the Miami Veterans Affairs Hospital, the University of Miami Hospital, and The Sylvester Cancer Center.
