Characteristics of Our Fellows

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 or are board certified. Information relative to board eligibility is available at the American Board of Pediatrics website. 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, have been highly rated residents, and embrace collaboration, critical thinking, and a growth mentality. 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 many have not.

After Graduation

  • Since its inception, the UH Rainbow Babies & Children's/Case Western Reserve University Pediatric Pulmonology Training Program has graduated nearly 70 fellows, accounting for approximately 6.5% of all practicing pediatric pulmonologists in the U.S. (fewer than 1,000 board certified Pediatric Pulmonologists practice in the United States)
  • Graduates of our training program include multiple Department Chairs and Division Chiefs, as well as a substantial number of CF Center Directors and training program directors. Many recent and prior graduates continue to succeed as funded physician-scientists and excellent academic clinician educators across the country.
  • Board passage rate is outstanding: 33 fellows graduated since 1995 and 32 of 33 have achieved subspecialty board certification (ie. successfully passed the pediatric pulmonology board exam).
