Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship Program at The Mount Sinai Hospital

The overall goal of our fellowship is to train our fellows to be superb academic clinicians and physician scientists in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine (PCCM) over a 36-month period of time and to prepare them to be the next generation of leaders in academic pulmonary and critical care medicine. The fellows develop and hone their clinical skills in PCCM over a 24-month period of time and pursue research endeavors for 12 months towards the latter half of their fellowship.  During all 36 months they participate in continuity pulmonary clinic and all divisional conferences.  The goals, objectives and competencies vary with each year of training with graduated increased responsibility over the 36 months of fellowship.

The Icahn School of Medicine Program is participating in the ERAS application process and in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). The ideal candidate for our fellowship program is someone who has an interest in pursuing an academic pulmonary and critical medicine career path. We define academics broadly whether it be in a clinician educator track or physician scientist track. We also include in our definition of academics a career path in quality improvement and medical education.
