Thank you for your interest in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship Program at UIC. For the upcoming match (academic year beginning July 1, 2017), we will only be accepting candidates for 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. It is open to physicians who are interested in an academic career and have completed an accredited internal medicine residency program. Due to NIH requirements applicants must be USA citizens or permanent residents. We will accept up to 3 new T32 fellows for July 1, 2017. uich
