The Duke Fellowship Training Programs in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine produce outstanding physicians who are fully prepared to pursue careers in academic medicine.
Our combined Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine fellowship program is a three-year program. Upon completion of training, fellows are eligible for dual certification in pulmonary and critical care medicine. The American Board of Internal Medicine requires a minimum 18 months of clinical training for board certification in both of these disciplines. All fellows in our combined program engage in scholarly activity and receive robust mentorship from our world-renowned faculty. We offer a fourth year of fellowship for trainees seeking advanced research training.
Our combined fellowship program accepts 5 fellows each year.
The division also offers a 1-year Critical Care Medicine fellowship program for trainees eligible for certification via The American Board of Internal Medicine "Pathway A". The ACGME accredited Duke IM-CCM program is built upon the division's tradition of excellence in training future leaders in academic medicine. Trainees enjoy a rigorous clinical training experience in a collaborative and collegial environment while working with renowned experts in the management of respiratory failure and complex cardiovascular disease. The program offers advanced training in state-of-the-art and emerging strategies for management of respiratory and circulatory failure. Trainees gain extensive experience in managing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation at one of the nation's highest volume extracorporeal life support centers.
Our critical care medicine fellowship program accepts 2 fellows each year.
