Information for Applicants

Thank you for your interest in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Program at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. We offer a three-year fellowship leading to certification in both pulmonary and critical care medicine. Three to four positions are available each year through the Medical Specialty Matching Program. Fellows spend two years on the clinical service and one year on the research service. The clinical service provides both formal course work and rotations on the division’s pulmonary disease inpatient unit, consultation service, and medical, surgical, cardiothoracic and cardiac intensive care units in the state of the art NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine and Hospital for Special Surgery facilities. The division also has educational conferences on weekly, bimonthly and quarterly schedules.

Fellows are trained to master all procedures of pulmonary and critical care medicine under the supervision of clinical faculty. Our research program focuses on genomics, gene expression, gene therapy, stem cell therapies, pulmonary inflammation and host defenses. Fellows enter a dynamic ongoing program to learn the techniques and skills required for research, prior to choosing a project at the laboratory bench and/or in clinical research involving human subjects. The clinical research rotation allows fellows to care for and study patients enrolled in research protocols at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine. All research fellows are fully funded. Housing is available on campus.

The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). No paper applications will be accepted. Interviews are by invitation only. Invitations for interviews will be extended from July 1 through August 15, 2016. H1B visas are no longer supported by NYPH or our fellowship program.
