The educational program provides physicians with the basic science and clinical knowledge to become respected consultants in pulmonary and critical care medicine and to perform the appropriate invasive procedures expected of a pulmonary and critical care specialist. Training is carried out in a scholarly, structured academic atmosphere and exposes fellows to a broad variety of disease states. Furthermore, the program encourages each trainee to pursue research projects with faculty supervision. Upon completion of the program, each fellow has a sufficient knowledge base to pass the American Board of Internal Medicine Sub-Specialty Examinations in Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine.
