The mission of our newly accredited Pulmonology Fellowship Training Program is to prepare postgraduate pediatricians to be experts in pulmonary medicine. Training is through a combination of educational activities, competencies, and assessment methods, including patient care, guided reading, and discussion with regards to organization, business planning, and management of the pediatric pulmonary service, and research methodology.
Under the direction of Tanya Martinez Fernandez, M.D., and overseen by the ACGME, our three-year Fellowship Program began enrolling two trainees each year in July 2011. The majority of fellowship education is through didactic conference and active participation in the inpatient, outpatient, and consulting services.
Fellows will be actively involved in scholarly activities and research throughout their three years of training.
