FELLOWSHIP FAQ

How do I apply?

We accept applications through ERAS which opens to applications in July annually.

Do you accept Fellows outside of the Match?

No. We participate in the National Residency Match Program.

How many Fellows do you accept each year?

We take 2 fellows per year on the research track, and between 2 and 4 fellows per year on the clinical track.

How long is your Fellowship?

There is a minimum of three years of training for ABIM Board eligibility. Fellows who join on the research track remain in training for at least one additional year beyond this on the NIH T-32 training grant.

Do you sponsor any visas?

No. While we do consider applicants on the J-1 visa program, we do not currently sponsor H-1B visa applicants.

I just want to do Critical Care. Do you have a critical care fellowship?

No, our Fellowship is solely a combined Pulmonary and Critical Care training program.

How is my application reviewed?

Applications are reviewed by 2 faculty members, and strong candidates are invited for an interview in September or October. We receive approximately 300 applications per year, and invite between 40 and 50 applicants for a visit.

What is the interview day like?

The purpose of the interview day is to introduce you to our program, and to get to know you and your interests. Candidates will attend a brief series of talks about the program, attend our daily Pulmonary and Critical Care Noon Conference, interview with 3 faculty members, and have lunch with the current fellows and faculty. An opportunity to tour the campus, and to meet with other faculty is also available.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
