Characteristics of Our Fellows
We welcome applications from pediatricians who are committed to patient care, education, and scholarship and who have completed an accredited pediatric residency program and are eligible for the Pediatric Boards. Fellows who are board eligible must become board certified during their fellowship in order to be eligible for the Pediatric Pulmonology sub-board.
In general, our fellows are excellent clinicians and have been highly rated residents. All fellows commit to the serious research training inherent in our program, and all enter the program with some interest in pursuing a career in academic medicine. Some have had extensive research experience prior to entering the fellowship, but some have not.
Three years of fellowship training usually lead to board eligibility in Pediatric Pulmonology. On rare occasions, fellows do not seek clinical training and concentrate only on the research aspects of training, or have received clinical training elsewhere. Such requests are reviewed individually.
