Department of Medicine

Fellowships

The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine maintains one of the most active and multi-faceted educational programs at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. The goal of our training program is to produce academic physicians in the subspecialty of pulmonary and critical care medicine. Our three-year training program is accredited by the Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program offers a structured curriculum encompassing rotations in the intensive care units of the medical center, as well as the opportunity to care for patients under the supervision of the division's clinical faculty. The program curriculum is based on the requirements of the American Board of Internal Medicine and Residency Review Committee. The curriculum includes formal course work, lectures and seminars, as well as supervised clinical training experiences. Fellows have ample opportunity to become experts in the performance of a high volume of procedures relating to the practice of pulmonary and critical care medicine.
