PULMONARY AND CRITICAL CARE FELLOWSHIP
Message from the Program Director
The University of Illinois at Chicago is the largest university in Chicago. The University of Illinois School of Medicine, which grew out of the College of Physicians and Surgeons (founded in 1881), is one of the largest medical schools in the nation and ranks in the top 50 universities funded by the National Institute of Health. With nearly 1 in 6 Illinois physicians having trained at University of Illinois, we boast the highest number of medical alumni of any American university.
The goal of the Pulmonary and Critical Care program is to develop internists into outstanding specialists in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine with good clinical judgment, extensive medical knowledge, clinical proficiency, humanistic qualities, commitment to continuing scholarship, and ethical behavior. The division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, Sleep & Allergy is strongly committed to preparing exceptional physicians for academic and practice careers.
Fellows have outstanding critical care experiences and participate in a full range of invasive pulmonary procedures. We are particularly proud of providing opportunities for our fellows to pursue an academic career. Our NIH-supported (T-32) training program allows fellows to spend up to 2 additional years doing research and provides the background needed to propel them into successful careers as physician scientists.
Thank you for your interest in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship Program at UIC. We accept candidates for our 3-year Clinician-Educator program and our 4-year, NIH funded, T-32 research fellowship program. In addition to training individuals to become expert pulmonary and critical care physicians, our program is designed to develop basic, clinical and translational research physician-scientists and career clinician-educators. It is open to physicians who are interested in an academic career and have completed an accredited internal medicine residency program in the United States. The NIH requires applicants for the T-32 physician-scientist program must be US citizens or permanent residents. . We hope you join our family and continue its proud tradition of excellence through our Pulmonary and Critical Care fellowship.
