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.
