    Clinical Experience

    Fellows in the Pulmonary Fellowship Training Program gain hands-on clinical experience through inpatient, outpatient and subspecialty service rotations. Over the course of three years, fellows spend a total of 12 months on inpatient rotations: caring for patients on the pulmonary medicine service, or providing inpatient pulmonary consults. Fellows collaborate with clinicians from other specialties to provide comprehensive care to patients. Fellows work closely with their supervising pulmonary attending, pulmonary nurse practitioners and the pulmonary resident team.

    Fellows also spend four months on the bronchoscopy, sleep medicine and pulmonary function testing (PFT) rotations. The remainder of fellows’ clinical experiences will involve weekly half-day outpatient continuity clinics.

    Research Experience

    Pulmonary fellows spend 17-20 months of their three-year training program focusing on research and scholarly activities. Research opportunities within the Division of Pulmonary Medicine at Cincinnati Children’s are diverse, ranging from basic science, clinical and translational research to quality improvement and outcomes research.

    Unique Training Opportunities

    Fellows have the opportunity to pursue individual interests through elective educational opportunities. Some fellows pursue combined training programs with allergy, sleep medicine or adult pulmonary medicine. Fellows with a strong interest in research may pursue a master’s degree in clinical and translational research through the University of Cincinnati.

    In addition, all pulmonary fellows attend the annual international bronchoscopy course, led by Robert Wood, MD, PhD.
