Thank you for your interest in the Icahn School of Medicine fellowship training program in Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine. This is an exciting time for the Division, which is in the midst of adding new talented faculty and new clinical programs. We offer an ABIM accredited three-year training program designed and tailored to meet the individual needs of each fellow planning a career in clinical education, investigation or basic science. Support is available for a fourth year of fellowship for promising young investigators.
Our educational mission is to train fellows to be outstanding clinicians within pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine and to provide the opportunities and skill-sets to develop successful careers in all facets of academic medicine. The first 18 months of training are purely clinical with a focus on learning the fundamentals of both pulmonary and critical care medicine. Fellows receive the broadest clinical training possible through a diverse patient population both at Mount Sinai Hospital and our affiliate, Elmhurst hospital. Twelve months of research time is provided in the middle of the second year where the fellow will be given the opportunity to acquire research skills and work on an individual scholarly project. The fellows have the opportunity to participate in bench, translational, clinical investigative or educational research projects and are provided mentorship by exceptional research faculty. Opportunity for advanced training
In clinical research through the MSSM MPH program is available.
