Curriculum

This ACGME-accredited Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship program is a combined subspecialty educational program that provides 36 months of training and supervised experience at a level sufficient for the fellow to acquire the competency of a subspecialist in both pulmonary disease and critical care medicine.

Global objectives of fellowship training in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at DHMC include:

  • Acquiring excellent clinical skills in pulmonary and critical care medicine, founded on a data-driven, evidence-based approach to patient care.
  • Demonstrating competency in a variety of procedural techniques required for the successful practice of both pulmonary and critical care medicine.
  • Learning and refining teaching skills, both formal and informal, that are essential to the role of the subspecialty consultant, regardless of whether he/she pursues clinical practice or an academic career.
  • Active participation in supervised, independent research activities.
  • Thorough preparation for dual subspecialty certification.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible for certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in the subspecialties of Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine. Over the past 20 years, 95% of our graduates have passed the ABIM board examination in Pulmonary Disease, and 93% have passed the ABIM board examination in Critical Care Medicine.
