How To Apply

Note to applicants:  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we anticipate conducting interviews virtually this season. Also, please note that the ERAS 2021 Fellowship Application Timeline has changed; we will begin reviewing applications August 12, 2020.

All applicants interested in training at Duke University Medical Center in the Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program will be considered without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin.

Our program only accepts applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) system. We will begin reviewing the applications in August and interview applicants September - October. We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

We generally do not accept H1-B and 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
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • USMLE scores step 1, 2, 3
  • Board scores if applicable
  • Personal statement
  • Research background/publications
