Fellowship Education

photo of 2020-21 Pulmonary and Critical Fellows

The Mission of the University of Texas Southwestern Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship Program is to provide clinical, educational, and scholarly experiences that will equip our graduates with the skills necessary to make lifelong contributions in education, research, and clinical practice within Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and beyond. The training focus is tailored to each fellow's career goals. Our Research track prepares fellows for careers as grant funded investigators in basic and translational sciences; our Clinical track prepares fellows for careers in clinical practice and clinician education. The Program's mission is in alignment with the mission of the sponsoring institution, broadly stated as to promote health and a healthy society that enables achievement of full human potential, by preparing trainees to further that goal.

What Our Program Offers

Fellows may enter one of two tracks: the Clinical Track or the Physician Scientist Track. Fellows in both tracks obtain broad-based exposure to a variety of diseases through rotations in UT Southwestern University Hospitals, county facilities, and Veterans Affairs environments.

All fellows rotate through the very busy MICU's of Parkland Memorial Hospital, William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, and the Dallas Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and see patients in the Cardiovascular Thoracic and Neuro ICU's in& UT Southwestern University Hospitals.

Our past fellows have been extremely successful and well represented in both academic and community practice. Two have served as Chairs of Departments of Medicine, four as Chiefs of Pulmonary Disease/Critical Care Divisions, and two as Deans.
