The pulmonary and critical care medicine fellowship is a fully accredited, three-year program providing comprehensive clinical training and extensive research opportunities. You’ll work closely with faculty in a collegial and supportive training atmosphere. Graduates include distinguished clinicians, educators and scientists working in dynamic careers throughout the world.

Rush University Medical Center is a major referral center for adult solid organ and stem cell/bone marrow transplants, as well as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.

Upon completion, you will be eligible for board certification in pulmonary disease and in critical care medicine. Single-specialty training is not available.
