HOW TO APPLY
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 only accept applications submitted via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).
Your ERAS application must include:
- General ERAS application form
- 3 letters of recommendation
- USLME transcript
- Medical school transcript and Dean’s letter
- Curriculum vitae
- Personal statement
- ECFMG (for foreign medical school graduates)
NOTE: Applications for the 2019 program will be available in July 2018.
