The Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship program at IU School of Medicine is structured to preserve flexibility and diversity for a myriad of career development goals.
The first year is comprised of 12 months of clinical time, split between pulmonary and critical care medicine. The second and third years are structured based upon the individual’s career goals. Those who wish to pursue a clinical career will have a total of 30 months of clinical time, with six months devoted to a clinical research project. Those who join our T32 training grant (usually one fellow per year) will have 18 months of protected research time. Those who wish to pursue a research/academic career will have somewhere between six and 16 months of protected research time, depending on their research project and career goals. Regardless of the pathway chosen, call and weekend duties are split evenly among all fellows.
All fellows will have one half-day of outpatient pulmonary clinic for the duration of their training at one of our outpatient facilities.
