How To Apply

Note to applicants:  In alignment with the Association of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Program Directors (APCCMPD), our national professional society, and to ensure a uniform interview process that is equitable to all applicants, our fellowship interviews will be held exclusively virtually. We will not offer in-person site visits. The full recommendation is available here.

All applicants interested in training at Duke University in either our Critical Care Medicine or combined Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Programs will be considered without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or national origin. We are committed to a holistic and equitable review of all complete applications we receive.

Our programs only accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) system. Only complete applications submitted received by July 29th, 2022 will be considered. We cannot offer interviews to candidates submitting incomplete applications.

Our recruitment committees will complete the initial application review process by August 12th, 2022. We are planning to send interview invitations to selected applicants between August 15-26, 2022. Interviews will be offered on selected dates in September and October.

Our programs participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) Medicine and Pediatrics Specialties Match.

We generally cannot accept applicants requiring H1-B or J-1 visas because they are not supported by our training grant. However, please submit your application for review if you feel it is exceptional.
All applications must include:

  • ERAS common application form
  • Secondary Application form (combined Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine fellowship only)
  • Three letters of recommendation. One letter must be from the applicant's most recent training program director (residency or fellowship).
  • USMLE Examination Transcript
  • Personal statement
  • Research background/publications 

Applicants to our combined Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine fellowship program will receive a link to complete our secondary application via email.  We do not require a secondary application for our Critical Care Medicine fellowship at this time.
